|Kentish Plover taken by Martin Casemore|
We posted in March about a Kentish Plover that was ringed in Germany as a breeding adult at St Peter-Ording (Schleswig-Holstein, Germany) in May 2009 (red pin). It returned to the same site again in June 2010, and was then seen in Sussex in March 2013 (yellow pin). This is valuable information in itself but it has now been reported on 24 June 2013 on the Eider Estuary (blue pin), Schleswig Holstein, Germany.

We still don't have much information regarding KPs that visit the UK or Ireland, so this information is very interesting. Hopefully we'll get to see this bird once again on our shores.
Thanks to Dominic Cimiotti for letting us know.
