Red-rumped Swallows and a distant Dotterel, Frampton Marsh

Not one, but TWO red-rumped swallows today at Frampton in freezing cold, torrential rain.  Both birds over the water behind the visitors centre. 

A very distant dotterel in the cow field with the golden plovers. A nightmare to find with the heavy rain, everything steaming up and me shivering !   Home for a very hot bath. 

Lots of ruff and distant curlew sandpipers. An excellent day with lots of birders to chat to and more importantly, some birds to look at for a change.
