Yesterday evening at the ponds just through the gate that leads down to Cape Pembroke I saw a small flock of 8 Baird’s Sandpipers, also in the flock were a couple of White Rumped Sandpipers. This is the best location for seeing Baird’s Sandpipers that I know of in the Falkland Islands, late afternoon seems to be the best time to see them.
