Eurasian Dotterel…

Following an already successful morning down the road at Leasowe Lighthouse with the putative ‘Iberian’ Wagtail, which if accepted by the higher powers would be the 2nd for Britain. It was a quick dash across the boarder to North Wales in an attempt to connect with a lingering flock of Eurasian Dotterel on the Great Orme in Conwy. After the short drive and a brief walk the birds where in sight and despite having a 400mm lens, the birds walked up so close at times the lens just couldn’t focus! Utterly incredible, seeing your own reflection in the birds eye as it scoffs a worm down.
