GOLDEN PLOVER flock clings on

Quainton Hills; scanned up from many roadside spots but only Mipits seen. Calvert; c60 Swallow/c 10 House Martin resting in dead trees. Hillesden pools; Usual suspects + 143 European Golden Plover in breeding plumage still in low crop to right of pools. Gloomy weather actually helped me get my best pics yet of them (see above), no heat haze off crop. A male Grey Wagtail in breeding plumage was unusual (Tim Watts)
