  1. The adult winter Plover is amazing Dominic. All so varied and each so beautiful and yet I always like to try and select one that touches my soul and this one Plover is wonderful. Have a blessed and safe weekend~

  2. Thanks for your very kind comment, Mary. Waders have become one of my favourite groups of birds, and are often challenging to photograph.
