Longmynd - Dots before my eyes!

The bird race was at Venus Reservoir was going nowhere and when a late morning tweet announced there were two Dotterel on the Longmynd (well done Dave Pearce!), it was a no-brainer where I should be....

A lovely pair showing really well despite the torrential 'drizzle'!

Female first

Busy feeding...

And posing :-)

The male was a bit more lively!

Eventually walking right up to me!

Or even flying up to me!

I'm not entirely convinced that Dotterel like pouring rain!

But it's soon ruffled off...

The day was going to take yet another twist - an Avocet!! At Wood Lane... I'm on my way
