With news breaking of a Pectoral Sandpiper at Rocher Pan earlier today which Margaret still needed for her Western Cape list and which would be a great one for the challenge list, we joined Sion and Tiana Stanton for a quick jaunt up there this afternoon. We were fortunate to find the bird within 15 minutes of arriving and managed to get a few record shots of it too although it always stayed distant. This was also only the 3rd ever Pectoral Sandpiper that Trevor had seen in the province, so all in all, a trip well worth doing at short notice.
