Pacific Golden Plover at Rutland

Casually checking my twitter feed on the way home on the bus, I found out there'd been a Pacific Golden Plover at Rutland Water since lunchtime - a 'needed' species! So it was straight down to Egleton as soon as I got home, where the bird was showing from Heron Hide - a bit of a yomp round. 

The bird was a little distant even for digiscoping, but showed well, sat on a stone bund and also flying to the nearby muddy shoreline to feed. It was nice and leggy and most of the other key ID features could be seen - or just about! A cracker.
