Pacific Golden Plover

Went to Hayle today to have a  look at the Pacific Golden Plover at Hayle, I caught up with it at Carnsew Basin, thanks to SW Optics for the information. I got great views but the light was Harsh and the bird distant for photography.

 The Pacific Golden-Plover breeds in western Alaska and Siberia and winters on islands across the Pacific Ocean, through southeast Asia, to northeastern Africa. It is uncommon in North America, found breeding in Alaska, and migrating and wintering in small numbers along the Pacific Coast.


  1. Well done mate,glad you caught up with this little Gem.

  2. Such an amazing looking bird! I have never seen a Pacific Golden-Plover before. I love the spots on it's feathers, such a striking looking bird. Thanks for the share, hope you had a fantastic weekend. Keep up the posts.
