This is knot a recent sighting. Apologies to those who have heard it before. Back in the last century Nick Lethaby found a Great Knot on the Bandon mudflats. It was there a long time and was known to hang out with 'regular' knots on the jetty at high tide. When I finally made it down there, it was very accommodating. After the tide came in, I headed down to the jetty to see if it would show up. But, all there was, was a single regular knot. Oh well, I had already OD-ed on it out on the flats. While I was there, a large group of California birders arrived in a van to try for a great sighting. They soon found the Knot on the Rocks, as advertised, and started congratulating each other with high fives, etc. I didn't disturb their elation. Not sure how it eventually turned out for them.
