Distant Dotterel

I was pleased to finally add adotterel image to my collection the other night.
The first i heard of it was on Tuesday but I couldn't get there so fortunately it hung around and I was able to catch up with it on Wednesday.
The bird was feeding in a tilled field between Tansterne and West carlton which basically is in the middle of nowhere, I was lucky enough to arrive at the site with birders already on it.
It kept its distance while i was there and I would say the nearest it came was about 70m.
The light was good and coming from the right direction so all in all a pleasing nights work.
