Semi-palmated Sandpiper

Four Semi-palmated Sandpipers have been identified at Wexford over the last two days.  This bird was well defined by the checkered pattern on its back and scapulars helping it to stand out from the other three birds that displayed different feather details, enabling to tell them apart (as outlined by Killian Mullarney).
