Green Sandpiper Tringa ochropus

This species may be seen in Norfolk at any time of the year, however it is by far the commonest in early autumn. Spring passage is miniscule compared to autumn passage. Ones and twos winter at many locations, often including places that aren't generally well-watched birding sites.
