Yes, the bird is beauty! "Hoping" is not enough, you need a lot of patience and luck (I got that bird to ~14 meters only because the help of jelouse Wandering Tatler - it was chaising the Pectoral)!That's a beauty. I haven't been that close to a Pec since I've had decent camera equipment. Here's hoping!
Now I'm after the Sharp-tailed Sandpiper - it's time for them to arrive but also uncommon bird (except some years when they are slightly more - same as the Pectoral).
