Euro Golden-Plover

Catherine Barrett and I did our annual birdathon today.
With literally, and I mean literally, two minutes before our 24 hours were up we zipped by a largish shorebird in Biscay Bay. Thinking it was almost certainly a Greater Yellowlegs we were reluctant to turn back and be sure... wow were we thankful we did!

Only the second Euro GP seen on the island this year - and the first on the Avalon since the major invasion of 2014.

A summary of our birdathon to come within the next couple days :)
