Kentish Plover

Last Saturday (7th August) a BINS message had me driving over to the South wall of Breydon Water, Peter A had found a Kentish Plover and I was keen to see it! 
As I walked up the bank the signs were looking good as they was a small throng of birders peering intently at something and I joined the crowd and was soon enjoying good mid-range views of an immature Kentish Plover just on the Norfolk side. It spent time feeding amongst Ringed Plovers whilst occasionally running very quickly Sanderling-like before it stopped near a stone and stood motionless for some time. The legs on the Kentish were well set back on the body making the bird look almost top heavy as if it was about to fall over.
