In today’s strong winds there was a group of Ringed Plover and Turnstone feeding on the grassland near the river mouth. When I parked up, some juveniles approached quite close, possibly trying to find extra shelter behind the van. There was steady pecking at small prey, but occasionally a Ringed Plover would grab hold of the end of a worm and pull and pull, sometimes the worm won (perhaps by breaking?), and sometimes not with the plover getting a large meal.

It’s worth mentioning that if a photo is shown less than full width, e.g. two side-by-side, simply left-clicking on it will enlarge it to its full size on a new page. And for all photos, this improves the definition and colour depth. Clicking on the ‘back’ button will return you to the site. At least, it works on my computer!
