Lydd Airport - 1000hrs - cold, sunny and dry - The wintering Dotterel was relocated by NB in the plover flock in a field near the airport this morning. Much better views than on ARC three days ago, although difficult to photograph due a reed-fringed ditch. The Dotterel tended to feed on the edge of the flock and at times was close to the access road before it departed with the Goldies about 11am. Buzzard also noted plus a Black Redstart by the hangars.
A drive around Caldecote delivered 50 Curlews and 53 Bewick`s Swans at Midley.
Scotney - 1200hrs - Plenty of Wigeons and Lapwings on the fields by the pits, plus several Redshanks, Dunlins and (at last) 3 Ringed Plovers.
