Greater Sand Plover

 On Saturday I made a trip down to Redcar beach to have a look at the Greater Sand Plover which had been frequenting the area. After being disturbed by beachgoers a couple of times, it settled near the shoreline and we were treated to some excellent views as it fed with a small flock of Ringed Plovers, Sanderlings and Turnstones. For a change the light, background and close range made for good digiscoping opportunities. Unfortunately the Red-backed Shrike at nearby South Gare remained more distant and avoided my camera.
