White Tailed Plover......Blacktoft Sands

                                           28th August 2021 :  Blacktoft Sands Rspb


White Tailed Plover.

On the 28th  August I travelled to Blacktoft Sands Rspb in East Yorkshire to try and see the White Tailed Plover (I still prefer to call it  WT Plover to WT Lapwing) which has taken up residence there in the last few days.

Having a wing stretch.

The White Tailed Plover spent most of it's time in front of the Xerox hide feeding , wing stretching and sleeping until a Marsh Harrier flushed everything and the WTP flew towards the Townend hide.

In flight.

The really bright yellow legs were really a stand out feature on this bird and the wing pattern was very striking to.

  1. Nice bird Rob, I wonder if it is the one that paid a brief visit to Stodmarsh a couple of weeks ago. Well worth the miles on the clock for.

    1. Thanks Steve, i was thinking the same thing, shame it didn't stay around at Stodmarsh for everyone to see though.


Thanks for taking the time to add a comment on my blog.
