Now that “Spotty” the Spotted Sandpiper has headed off from Ayrshire, it is a good time to record his stay. (For those of us living outside South Ayrshire, a lot of people are very grateful Spotty hung around until the lockdown was eased!)
We have two articles on Spotty:
- Firstly is a Finder’s Note by Hayden Fripp on how he first came to find the bird last Autumn.
- Then we have an article by Angus Hogg on how Spotty’s plumage changed over the Winter and what he could turn into when an adult.
These two articles are both documents. My thanks to Hayden and Angus for writing them.
