A single Dunlin, which appeared to fly in to the rocks at Newton Point with a flock of Ringed plovers, was my first sighting of this handsome wader species this year. Though initially standing alone on the quickly disappearing patch of sand at the base of the rocks, it soon moved on to a large rock to hunker down with the other roosting waders, the Turnstones, Ringed plovers and Sanderlings.
