Another day another yank wader

Today an unexpected bird turned up in Durham in the form of an American Golden Plover. This bird was an adult moulting out of summer plumage into winter, the bird showed well although it didn't do much other than sleep! Still it was a brilliant bird to see and a species that hasn't been seen in Durham for about 15 years!

Until next time, Foghorn out!
