Cheating a bit as this photo was taken at Caerlaverock, but it's the same bird:

WHITE TAILED PLOVER on the Eric Morecambe Pool at 5pm. Chased off by a Redshank at 6pm and flew fairly high north. Appeared to drop in height but then was out of view - possibly dropped onto main Leighton Moss reserve. A search commenced but negative so far.

Wood Warbler still at Tower Lodge.
