    Found this bird struggling to fly 100 miles North East of Shetland. There is a bit of dispute among the boys what it is.

    Is it a Ruff by any chance.

    Thanks. JP

    Hi John,

    It could be a juvenile grey plover

    Bit far north for a grey - I'd say young golden

    Thanks folks, I guess it is a plover of some description. It was wandering around looking dazed and confused on the Cormorant Alpha platform, one thing I'm sure of is that it ain't a cormorant......

    Maybe not a Cormorant much more likely to be a juvenile Golden Plover
