Sunday 1st June. Not a good day to be at work all day with news of an American Golden Plover at Pegwell Bay and a shed load of work to do . To say I was inundated with MRSA screening swabs would be an under estimate and so the day continued with the bird showing well, as did the swabs until night fell and I was still working!!!
Monday dawned dull and grotty, though a text early am lifted spirits as the AGP was still present. At 1318 I was on site, vying for a position amongst the gathered hordes of birders, 'only I was 24 hrs late' and the track was deserted, wet, and not a bird or birder in sight! Fortunately out of the gloom appeared Keith Holland and his mum and we had the bird to ourselves for a while enjoying it's finer detail as the rain continued to fall. A great bird to see and a real stunner, well worth the trip down.The delights of Pegwell mud minus the bait diggers and the sun seekers.
Ok, poor piccie but what a worm !!!!! It you want to see proper pictures of this bird see the following http://www.kentos.org.uk/Photographs/AGP1stjunePeg.htm
