A short drive out on the Fenland revealed a misty dull afternoon with the occasional sun being regularly blocked or partially obscured by the thick cloud and mist.
Before dusk arrived and the sun setting, I was able to find and take some shots of the largest flock of Lapwing I have seen in a long time.
I was thinking to myself, 'This could be the entire contingent of the East Anglian flock of Lapwings here flying about before me'. Although not all appearing in the images taken, I would roughly estimate 300+.
A very encouraging sight.
The next three images are a variation on a theme.
Miserable isn't it.
My local Birding colleagues will recognise exactly where I was during this shoot.
I am fairly sure this flock were Golden Plover that eventually grounded with the Lapwing.
I think this below is a mix of Lapwing and Golden Plover
