Caught this Sandpiper at Esquimalt at 3.00pm was in a bunch of Westerns.
The two side by side this one is nearly twice as big.
I see it has a Rufous cap and an Eye ring.
I know its not a Pectoral...

Thanks again Paul first I said to myself Pectoral as the previous day there was one easily ID,d Then this one shows up the day after in a little richer colours which through me off.
Looking at both mine and yours I shall go with the Pectoral..

Cheers Kip ,,, appreciate the input.
