Little Ringed Plover & Grey Plover

Little Ringed Plover & Grey Plover



Davidstow airfield (Cornwall) usually turns up one or two waders passing through in the spring, on driving around the runways I was pleased to find this Little Ringed Plover feeding beside a pool, this is not a common bird in this part of the country and this was the best views I’ve had of one.

I was pleased to get some photos from the car, resting my lens on a beanbag.

After a while it was joined by a Grey Plover which came very close allowing for some nice shots, pity it was a bit rainy but that’s quite normal for this site.

His love of birds and the wildlife found in the world around him has inspired him to try to capture them in photographs as they go about their everyday lives.Living near Launceston on the (Devon side now) Cornwall/Devon border allows plenty of opportunities to visit many beautiful locations, favorites being the North Cornwall coast, the Lands End area and the Exe estuary,as well as traveling further afield both in Britain and overseas.
