Seaforth NR,
Another absolutely stunning bird in the shape of a WHITE-TAILED LAPWING today. Only the 6th UK record of this Asian wader. Eye popping views of it, as it showed down to 10 metres on the scrape next to hide A. It had flown off over the fence before I arrived but luckily it returned. What an excellent purple patch Seaforth is having at the moment. Long may it continue.
I managed to see the Leighton Moss bird a couple of years ago but only very distantly so this bird was a real treat.
