Observation details

***Very rare in Bristol county and extremely rare this far inland; glanced behind me at 6:07 while at the manure piles and noticed large group of high flying shorebirds. Immediately got JSE on them and took many photos before they disappeared to the SE. Large shorebirds with long narrow wings and black underwing coverts showing white on the bases of the outer primaries. Long thin upturned bills noted in pics. Many poor pictures due to the bad light. Appears to be the highest count for the MA in the past 10 years as far as I can see. Definitely an exceptional first yard record and not soon to be forgotten. It may take the cake as our best sighting ever here.
