Hi Trevor,
Last evening there was a 40 strong mixed flock of Dunlin and Ringed Plover on Par Beach.
Also on the pool a Common Sandpiper and a Wood Sandpiper. Is the wood a first for the pool?
Also to my shame I should have sent you what is now a very late record record of a juvenile Little Ringed Plover on the pool on 17/07/2013. My apologies. Again is this a first?
Best Wishes

A nice pair of photographs Nigel.  You will have to ask the experts for that answer....can anyone supply the information?

Thank you for the update lilahstewart.
Hi Trevor, I couldn't help but notice your site is looking a bit sparse at the moment, so here are some images from a rather spectacular day's watching last Thursday. The locals put on quite a show!
1849: Kestrel above Polkerris (I hadn't noticed it until I looked at the picture!)
1878 & 1886: Kestrel giving Buzzard a hard time, same location.
1925: Gannet
1926: Seal, at the Gribben
More to follow!

Hi Andy. Thanks for the report and photographs.
Things have indeed taken a nosedive...parking charges at PBP do not help and of course myself and Roger are somewhat housebound. It does seem a little ironic a man from Shrewsbury is keeping us afloat.
