294/365v2 A Lapwing and a Sandpiper

I wouldn’t normally publish a photograph like this because, frankly, it’s not very good…but it excited me that, without knowing it, I had photographed a bird I’d never (knowingly) seen before, being the Lapwing. Now, I’m in no way a twitcher, but since I took up photography I have certainly become more interested in wildlife generally.

It wasn’t a great day for photography – I popped out and had been walking up the bank of the river Stour (where this was taken) when the heavens opened and in the space of 100 yards (the dash back to the car) I was soaked to the skin – trousers only this time as I did have a waterproof coat on for once.
