What a super bird. This lone female Dotterel is well marked and as with most Dotterel was exceedingly confiding, often making short runs towards us. The open wing shot is just before it took off and flew high to the South. It had made several wing stretches before but I guess this time it decided it wanted to see more of the Essex Coastline. Hopefully it will reappear.

Probably the best Dotterel I've ever seen was this super confiding female
