2011_365007 - Sky Full of Plovers

#1103 - 2011 Day 7: I found myself in the middle of a wildfowl spectacular on the Sussex coast this morning. This flock of ringed plover were flying back and forth between two sections of beach, often no more than a few yards from where I stood, filling the sky, their aerial coordination a marvel to behold at close quarters.


This is on the beach at Worthing looking along the coast to Brighton & Hove (the city just visible in the background).


I had much earlier made some images from the telly when England won The Ashes, but this surpasses even a momentous cricket day ...
