Brian Craven and Mark Worden found an American Golden Plover at Davidstow in the week. Being just the third North American wader in Cornwall this Autumn, and with precious little else to see, I decided to take a look on Sunday morning. It was showing well and typically very confiding. It was not concerned with the stream of admirers viewing from their cars.
As always with Davidstow, the light was stunning and variable and always a challenge for the best exposure. The images below were taken about twenty yards away from the bird.
