A Dotterel at Last, but how cold!!

Well, our son has gone off to the Isle of Mull and sent us photos of todays weather there, full sun and blue sky on the journey up and 23 degrees apparently!  We enjoyed arctic conditions of 8 degrees whilst watching the Dotterel up at Danby Beacon.  Many thanks to Simon for reporting it early on the website enabling us to go and see it.  Have been paying a visit most weekends in the hope of seeing it but probably wouldn't have gone today.
Managed to find a Woodcock on the way back home in woods along Westerdale Road.  A nice find and one for our list.
Very well camouflaged as you can see.
