Now virtually annual on the airfield of St. Mary's. Unlike the bird last year this individual was only present for one day, spent most of its time on St. Martin's at the Daymark, and never really showed particularly close. It's one day visit was on Sunday when no planes were in or out though it did get flushed by locals out walking their dogs on the runways.

Note here the differences with the European Golden Plover.
