LEAST SANDPIPER in Hampshire

A LEAST SANDPIPER was found on a private part of the Farlington Marsh reserve today by Jason Crook. Access will not be possible to this specific area, but there is a reasonable chance that the bird may show in public areas tomorrow (high tide is at around 1000 hrs).

Please note that there are parking restrictions on the site and ONLY 12 car spaces are available, so you are best advised to park at the Broadmarsh car park (SU702053) or in Farlington town itself and walk from there.

Anything that is known about the bird's location will be posted on the noticeboard at the reserve information centre (SU685047).

There is only one previous record for Hampshire - one spent the day at Farlington Marshes on May 22nd 1977.
