White-rumped Sandpiper

Although rather distant, a small sandpiper with a short straight bill and a white rump was seen by Bob Greenhalf, Mary B. and me this morning near the hide at Castle Water. Definitely not a Curlew Sand, even less Green or Wood. We lost it after a few minutes but it could still be about, so worth looking out for.
