Here are a few sandpipers I had a close encounter with day before yesterday.  They were at a sod farm (turf farm) feeding in puddles and flooded areas after heavy rains.  Sadly the Hudsonian Godwit that was found the day before was no longer present.  

 

Here is a Least Sandpiper - it has not yet fully molted out of its breeding plumage:

It's the first home match of the season for Liverpool  and in an hour I'm off to Anfield to watch.

What could be more appropriate than a Red Knot!!
