Dotterel! Oakley Airfield.

I'm on a bit of roll. Had this Dotterel flying over Oakley Airfield this morning, walking distance from Holly's. Presumably it broke from the Golden Plover flock that is present in the area (I had over 350 today).  Vis mig and migrant Ebird list HERE

A bit of a Fieldfare day with 151 counted. Not so many migrants on the ground today- a big reduction in Skylark and Linnet numbers but an increase in Meadow Pipits.

The Dotterel is only the 8th record for Bucks and the first in 24 years.
