The Abbeystead Dotterel again

April 25, 2010:
The Dotterel was still there today amongst an enlarged flock of Golden Plovers but this time it was even more distant (80+ metres).

Manual focus, a tripod and a 1.4x extender didn't really result in larger images. At one time all the birds took to the air for no apparent reason but were still just as far away when they re-settled.

Golden Plovers circling the field.

A bonus later in the day was a good view of Pied Flycatchers in a wooded area. It may be possible to get some photos of them soon.
