A trip down to Stithians Reservoir in Cornwall today with Paul Bray and Dave Boult got us a real rarity a Pacific Golden-Plover that was quite close when we arrived but then flew further out from us . This was my third one seen in Britain . With my first at Pilling in Lancashire in 1990 and my second was at my local patch Bowling Green Marsh in Topsham Devon in 92 .
I have also seen these birds in Queensland in Australia & a few in California in the USA .
A good tick for you 2 Boys 😊👀
