Plovers Numerous

"Can you spot the Golden Plover"

A visit to Titchwell Marsh provided the wonderful sight of a large flock of Golden Plover.
At one stage something spooked them and they all took off and flew around a few times before landing quite orderly in turn on the same patch of water.







Plovers in the stack.
They appeared to spiral down behind each other and then choosing a spot to pitch.









Just for fun a few close ups.

  2. Hei Roy! Miten paljon lintuja! Kyllä olisi kiva nähdä näitä lintuja edes yksi! Oliko seassa muita lintuja?

    1. Thanks Lyn. Yes, there is always a flock of some bird or other at Titchwell, but they don't always perform like that.

  8. Hey Roy... OMG these photos are just crazy amazing, love them!!! That must have been a great rush of photographer's adrenal. ;)
    Can't help but think what great jigsaw puzzles these photos would make.
    That would be a challenge to put together :)
