Airfield, St. Mary's - Dotterel and co.

Returning from Tresco, the day was not done as a rather showy Dotterel had been reported amongst a few other good birds! Taking the step count over 20,000 were, in order of seeing them...

My worst ever blog-pic of a Snow Bunting! It was hunkered down in the wind and I needed to move on!

And after the Shropshire mindblower, a rather distant Lapland Bunting!

There were also, Golden Plover, Ringed Plover and despite a Peregrine spooking most of the birds, the Dotterel showed really well!

Even got a ruffle!

Yes, showing nicely in the evening light...

This was 'somehow' my first Dot on Scilly - well overdue I reckon!
