It's amazing how a bit of sunshine brings out the colours of birds like the Lapwing.

Yes Trev, it's Blashford againSmile Not a bad place for certain birds over the Summer although a little quiet on the quantities. Can't wait for the Autumn migration as there are supposed to be some interesting birds about to turn up, based on previous years.

Two top shots Alan, v1 particularly stands out for both the pose, with head tilted to one side, and the beautiful irridescent colours you've captured in the plumage
