White-tailed Plover

Made the long trip down to Kent today to Dungeness for the White-tailed Plover (or Lapwing if U prefer) didn't set off till late as i waited for news on arrival i was soon watching the bird although somewhat distant (I think with the strong winds today most birds seemed to be keeping their heads down)I was hoping for some decent pics but the bird just didnt want to play ball!!! headed over to the nearby Denge Marsh for the Purple Herons (Bogey bird & still is!!) good views of the Great white Egret but missed the Herons several times throughout the day but on the + side according to a local source the warden counted 7 chicks today?!!? other birds seen 4+ Hobby, Green Sandpiper,Mediterranean Gull,Little Egret & Marsh Harrier

Dave the WT Plover is a cracking looking bird.
