Belated news: AGP flies west over reservoirs
Early on Tuesday morning, Rob Andrews heard and saw an AMERICAN GOLDEN PLOVER fly high west over Marsworth and Startop's End Reservoir. Francis, Mike Campbell and I searched for it shortly later but there was no sign of it on Wilstone. However, this afternoon, what must be the same bird was relocated with European Golden Plovers on Port Meadow, just NW of Oxford. It is a juvenile. Rob's sighting represents the first record of AGP for the county.
