Spurred on by the disappointment of dipping I got up early this morning and managed another quick trip to Musselburgh before attending a meeting in central Edinburgh for the day. Despite the pouring rain, the White-rumped Sandpiper was feeding with Dunlin and a single Curlew Sandpiper. The light was terrible, the optics were steamy, and time was very short. Still glad I made the effort as this American vagrant was a Lothian and Scottish tick for me!
