As a first for the Western P I guess no-one was concerned at the time - I always thought that it was found by an American resident here then but he didn't know what it was. In fact at the time no-one here new that a ''Little Whimbrel'' existed - I had to look it up in an Atlas of the Birds of the Western P - I also saw the next one in Cley a year later - there have been none since.

the Laird of Kenfig (LMoK) neither found or identified it,contrary to (un)popular myth.

I think that's been well established, along with any number of other of his finds, toodle pip
