Long distance badgers

Too windy for recording Cetti's so busied myself with birding paperwork. I have spent most of the day staring out the window in between spells writing cobblers about redpolls, all to the tune of England comprehensively beating an under-performing Windies side. In an effort to maintain a minimum level of interest within the readership, here's a picture of some brightly coloured passage waders currently to be found refueling along the estuary on the way to somewhere really exciting like Greenland or Baffin Island. Not the most difficult of identification conundrums, I guess the most likely confusion species for Turnstone is American Badger although I accept many fewer of the latter are to be found flipping pebbles on the Goldcliff foreshore (see here to be totally convinced).
