Out of place wader

Couldn't resist going to see this juvenile Pectoral Sandpiper which had pitched up on a lawn on a housing estate on Portland without so much as a puddle in which to wade. I thought it didn't look too well but, encouragingly, it later relocated to Radipole Lake where it might have more luck finding something to eat. A very unlikely location for any bird, let alone a rare one.
