Some photos I am NOT pleased with but the sighting I am very pleased with - so here are the photos. The bird is a Lesser Sand-Plover which I photographed back on the 11th February and the interesting thing about it is the white flag on its leg. I have only just heard from the person who keeps the records that the bird has apparently lost a second flag and it was possibly flagged in Shanghai, China. I always find it fascinating to hear where the migratory shorebirds have actually visited on their journeys up and down the flyway.
The second photo shows the flagged bird as it appeared with others on the shoreline.
