The everyday of our family farm
Lovely things. Though looking at your photos I would dispute the black-footed.
Not a bird I know at all. Looks like water levels are dropping.
Similar to our killdeers. Wonder if they are the same family! Low water?
I just did some research on your Killdeers vs our dotterels, and yes you are correct. They are both part of the plover family. Well spotted!!I photographed these in our gravel pit where we pump a little ground water out of, hence the decreasing water level that you see in the photo. The gravel pit is located on what is called a “prior stream” and the water naturally recharges over time through the sand. It is by no means an endless supply of water but we are licenced to pump a little out.
They look very much like the Dotterels we get on Lewis.
I like the pattern of the lines on this photo. Nice composition!
Wonderful! New sightings are always great.
