Slightly better light for the Holes Bay Smew this morning
Despite being very common in the Winter months, I just adore dunlin. They are always on the go and are fantastic to watch on open water as they run back and fourth up and down the sand with the waves, as if they were children daring each other not to get their feet wet. Their rather dumpy appearance on the ground changes dramatically when they take off in any numbers; it's breathtaking as they fly fast and low in formation, swerving back and fourth like so many brown and white paper darts. Wonderful little birds but so annoyingly similar to so many other small waders, especially in the winter when all the summer plumage on all species has faded to so many shades of grey and brown.
Dartford Warbler, Lytchett Heath
