Dotterels, Dale airfield


Took a bit of finding but at least 2 dotterel still on the airfield this evening, (and a Golden plover). One spent most of it's time at the intersection with occasional feeding forays along the edge of the stoney field. During the hour I was watching it a second bird called from time to time from somewhere further up the field, the bird I was watching called back but seemed reluctant to move. I left it there and went looking for the other but couldn't find it.

The Ravens were out in numbers with c20 pairs tumbling and flipping in the warm updrafts above Marloes Sands, quite a spectacle (they must have seen the trailer for the new Top Gun film).
