Its great when you book a night away and the day before you go a mega turns up 2 miles from where you're going to be staying. Even better when its still there when you get there. A brisk walk round to the north scrape at Cley saw the Plover a good range. Only phone-scoped as 'someone' has dropped my compact!
I knew it was there but I hadn't realised it was going to be s/p so that was a nice surprise. Started panicking tho because I hadn't swotted up the subtle differences! Last one I saw was in Cairns in winter plumage in 2008!
One of several Spotted Redshank at Titchwell where there were also several Little Gull and 2 Green Sand. Phone-scoped.
