That's more like it! Never mind climbing hills after an all-night drive to the far flung corners of England. This is how I had hoped to see Eurasian Dotterel last year on our Wader Quest travelling project.
News broke of three Eurasian Dotterels being seen near Whittlesey in Cambridgeshire, so Elis and I pottered up there and, after just a short, level walk with not the slightest of inclines from the car, there they were. Three dotterels, one male and two luscious females.
