SANDPLOVER at Dornoch - breaking news......

A SANDPLOVER said to be in full breeding plumage was discovered at Dornoch Point, 1.5 miles SSE of Dornoch, yesterday (Chris Chapman) and has been seen again this afternoon (local observers). The bird is on a beach right at the tip of the point and is in with Dunlin, Ringed Plovers and Sanderling and showing well, at 1400 hours at least. It is being reported as a GREATER SAND PLOVER at present but I am hoping images will be available soon, knowing the intracacies involved in separating these birds......
