Golden Plover

When moving between swan catching sites, our eyes are always scanning the road side - watching for any adult Golden Plover or Whimbrel on guard. If we see any adults beside the road, we pull over and watch for agitated behaviour. We then start looking for any young birds.

This was the case yesterday, when driving around Lake Myvatn we managed to locate two Golden Plover chicks....
We also caught 19 Whooper swans yesterday....
