Geoff McDonald, who was with Clive Minton & Susan Taylor when this plover later ID'd as a Semi-palmated was discovered, advises that it was not seen when he was banding there on Monday 28 June. I suspect that the banders were concentrating on catching the waders on the isolated sand bar rather than looking for one rare bird among the thousands of waders there and on the adjacent spit. They were successful in banding 160 Bar-tailed Godwits. So not good news but not necessarily bad.
We will now submit the record for assessment by BARC.
