Golden Plover.

Report and photographs. Andrew Carey

Good to see you and Angie out and about today. I managed to get a couple of shots of the ring-necked duck in sunshine, and also a small section of the golden plover flock on Penpillick Hill, early afternoon. Pics attached.

Thank you for the report and photographs Andrew.
We had a good day starting with the Golden Plover flock (estimate 300+).  At St Andrews we caught up with a Marsh Tit and Water Rail. PBP we got to see the Ring-necked Duck followed by the first Stonechats, Little Egret and Rock Pipits of the year  at the river and shoreline.
Manoa Valley coughed up....Grey Wagtail, Goldcrest and Chiffchaff plus the usual regulars.
A decent start to the year.
