White-tailed Plover (White-tailed Lapwing) Vanellus leucurus

Until recently none of the few UK records of this species had been seen by more than a handful of people but since 2008 two wide-ranging birds have been available to twitchers in Lancashire, Dumfries & Galloway, Essex, Gloucestershire and Kent.
