Golden Plover and Lapwing at RSPB Old Moor, Dearne Valley, Barnsley, South Yorkshire

Wading birds on the mud-flats at RSPB Old Moor.

Just a few of the 8 thousand or so Golden Plover (Pluvialis apricaria) which spend the colder months at this thriving nature reserve with a couple of Lapwing (Vanellus vanellus).

These waders probe the mud for food, mainly insects and crustaceans.
