mini twitch to day myself rob and adam meeting at swalecliffe hoping for a kent tick on the KP,freezing our nuts of for a few hours with no joy,normal bits and bobs seen,then a message came in in about the BLUE THROAT being seen again at the hoe,a few moments thinking about it and we where off with mr ashton in tow after him seeing on the beach,never got to the hoe so quick,after the last one that me and adam dpped on,but we had are lucky charm rob who never dipped on one,as soon as we got out the car we saw it

the weather was terrible with sleet a few half decent shots taken,happy as larry we all was,but it was bitter and blue really summed it up,after meeting loads of local birders we know we soon departed back to swalecliffe for another go for the KP,after returning we met up with mark and phil,so hunted high and low and with no joy,then i found a roost of ring plovers and in front of them on the ridge was the KP showing very well so called the other over with rob seeing it briefly,then they took flight and adam saw it too,but we never refound it
taken in lesvos last year,the one today was adult bird looking rather stunning

Some good records of the Bluethroat . Shame about the KP disappearing so quickly.
