There’s a flooded meadow near my home, where the pumps running the drainage were stopped many years ago to allow the place to return to a more natural state. It is a great stopover for migrating waders, but there are some breeders as well, not least common snipes, marsh sandpipers, lapwings and ringed plovers.
On this particular morning only the lapwings and the marsh sandpipers made an appearance; along with shovelers and teals. The light was great, the wind direction less so – but a few of the images turned out nicely. Here’s a gallery of the best ones – do click on the first one to open the gallery!
