Another visit to Bennerley Marsh. The 20+ Golden Plover were scattered across the edges of the flood pools and were watched by Black headed Gulls eager for snatching ane asy worm. Lapwings looked resplendent in the sun and a pair of Little Ring Plovers ran amongst bigger birds.
A strange coincidence. Just as I was asked by another birdwatcher if I had seen anything of the Kingfisher, a small bird flew into a Hawthorn on the riverbank. Its colours glowed even without the telescope and to our surprise the Kingfisher sat in full view for some minutes before plunge diving and flying off out of view.
