Female Dotterel (Charadrius morinellus)

By DerekL    
Thank you for all the votes/comments on my previous upload of an Green Hairstreak Butterfly, especially the valued User Award from Ladynewbury and idiabb.

Here is a Female Dotterel, I was lucky to see at The Great Orme, Conwy, North Wales, UK 29/04/2019
A first for me, as it's a bird I have been trying to photograph for a very long time.

Thanks Richard.
Unfortunately, the 3 birds that have been there for a week flew out over the sea last night and were not seen again this morning.

It's a good spot for Wheatear, Stonechat, Chough and Meadow Pipit.
