Blashford Lakes new arrivals

Arrived at the car park to be greeted by the constant calling of Little Ringed Plover. The bird then birds were flying around and calling for a good 10 minutes, occasionally coming over the carpark

They later settled to join 2 other birds that had also arrived today

They were certainly very excitable and wasted no time in getting on with the business of courtship. There was tail fanning, some kind of parallel walking, lots more calling and even scrape making. All at pretty close quarters
