Just A Few More

Thought I would just post a few more images from last week's climb up Fairsnape Fell to see the trip of dotterel enjoying the current summer weather on the Lancashire Fells. It was a memorable experience as it always is when watching dotterel. This group of birds were very confiding and allowed a careful close approach and myself and the other photographers present had a field day with these beautiful birds.
I have posted a few more of both female and male birds and also a few more general shots showing the photographers and just how close we were to the birds. Also some landscape images showing Parlick Pike and Fairsnape Fell from across the Vale of Chipping taken early morning from Longridge Fell. Hope my readers enjoy my record of this wonderful day high up on the Bleasdale Fells.

  2. Hello all,

    Nice post! The dotterel is a small wader in the plover family of birds. It breeds in the Arctic tundra of northern Eurasia,from Norway to eastern Siberia and on suitable mountain plateaus such as the Scottish highlands and the Alps. It nests in a bare ground scrape and lays two to four eggs. Thanks a lot!
