Went to the lakes on the way home from work, however, only had my binoculars with me. Luckily there were a couple of people with scopes, but the birds they were looking at were all Green Sandpipers.
I then decided to move my car elsewhere so it didn't get locked in the car park. Once I got back to the new workings I joined Marek and pointed at a bird in the far distance which he identified as the bird, a Wood Sandpiper - I had a brief look through his scope.
We then tried to see if we could see it from the path to no avail. We then organised a quick fence hop with everyone who was present and managed to see the bird quite well. The gangly look, obvious supercilium and spangly back was seen fairly well.
