Swifts and Dunlin, Soil Hill.










An amazing hour on Soil Hill this evening in pleasant conditions for a change.
The Dunlin found by DF, Calderbirds, this morning was still present feeding well in a scrape and at one point 100+ Swifts were drifting >N overhead.
Several Skylark were up singing but no sign of the LRP and RPs.

I see you really struggled to get long range shots of this very nervous bird.

Kept having to push it back into the water so I could focus
