M.S. went off on a wander,
I tucked myself away out of sight, not a sound, no movement, 4 top species photographed from the same position in 40 minutes of incredable bird watching.
The sun was sinking fast, shadows, I made my way over to the sea shore where M.S. had been having an equal exciting encounter with
Kentish Plover, 4 including a very nice adult male.
The light is now a bit low, however a distant record shot
