White-Tailed Plover ........ part two

White Tailed Plover.

Having twitched the White-tailed plover on Saturday i could not believe my eyes when the pager went mad informing me that it had re-located at Dungeness on the ARC pits , a first record for Kent , i just had to go for it again and what a treat , it was far closer than when i saw it at Slimbridge , quite simply stunning to see at such a close range , long yellow legs , pale head were all easily seen , it was much more active as well constantly preening giving superb views of its very white tail , i also saw it in flight a couple of times , which was just amazing to see , this much traveled bird is a delight and rates as my fav bird of the year so far ( watch this space) .
I also managed to have better views of the Purple Herons this time , still only flight views but more prolonged than the time before , so all in all a great days birding   !!
