Walking the dog up the track first thing this morning, a plover, black and silver, came flying over the fields heading north, the years' first Grey Plover was respendent in full summer plumage. Shortly after 10 Golden Plover took the same flight line. Late this afternoon a Common Buzzard drifted east and a Barn Owl hunted behind the garden.
