I was hoping to get a good action shot of one of our resident Blacksmith Plovers (or Blacksmith Lapwing as I think it's now called) dive bombing the Pied Crows that were sitting on the pylons, but sadly I failed. However, I did manage to get a good in-flight shot of one of the plovers.
These birds nest in the long grass below the electricity pylons and the Pied Crows often steal eggs and chicks from the nests, hence the reason the plovers attack them.
