Observation details

This was my third time out on the peninsula looking for these guys and I thought I'd dip again. Had scanned all the waders from one end of the roost to the other and couldn't see anything that looked like a Grey Plover (or PGP). Then I heard a different call and saw a bird flying straight at me from over the mangroves. As it flew right past me I could see the distinctive black armpit. Third time lucky.
