SOUTHERN MIGRANT HAWKER AT PORTHGWARRA.

TODAY WE WENT TO PORTHGWARRA HOPING FOR THE 
SOUTHERN MIGRANT HAWKER BUT EXPECTING IT TO HAVE GONE. 
IT WAS STILL THERE AND VERY EASY TO SEE BUT BUSY CHASING OFF 
A COUPLE OF EMPERORS. IT HARDLY EVER LANDED.

BUT DIDN'T SEE ANY. THERE WERE HOWEVER PLENTY OF 
PURPLE HAIRSTREAKS, BRIMSTONES AND SILVER-WASHED FRITILLARIES.

PACIFIC GOLDEN PLOVER AT GOTHIAN SANDS.

AFTER MUCH DEBATE WE THINK THIS IS A PACIFIC GOLDEN PLOVER
AND NOT AN AMERICAN GOLDEN PLOVER.
