Dotterels at Cold Edge Road

Nice to see a good size crowd of birders today at the Dotterel twitch at Cold Edge Road. These video snaps were the best I could manage in windy conditions. Also as well as the 3 Dotterel were 22 Golden Plovers, 2 Wheatears and 2 Oycs.

Glad you got some shots Nick. It was great to see such a good turn out for some very
special birds. Well done especially to Dick S for finding the birds in the first place and for the phone call this afternoon, many thanks.

Also thanks to everyone for respecting the birds and giving them space to rest and the opportunity to refuel for the next step of their journey north.

Please keep to viewing from the roadside or the Calderdale Way footpath thereby respecting that the fields are in private ownership with sheep lambing.
