Kiss of death for W-t Lapwing?

After one of the rarest birds of the year spent weeks touring Lancashire, London, Gloucestershire and Kent (and even The Netherlands), some of the BirdGuides office finally managed to catch up with the recent White-tailed Lapwing at Dungeness (somewhere in the pic below).

Talk about leaving it to the last minute, a spur of the moment decision saw us abandoning the office to head to Dungeness a couple of days ago. Good job we did, as the day after we were there was the last day the bird was seen! And just to embarrass Stephen Menzie, check out his wonderful iPhone-digiscoped photo below... Rather more impressive photos of the bird are on the BirdGuides website.
