Plovers

With the horrible weather we have at the moment, I have finally started to sort through my images from Mallorca. First up are some Plovers - Little-ringed and Kentish. It was nice to be able to photograph these small birds at close range and get some good feather detail. The low evening light has really lifted them from the background, particularly the Little-ringed Plover with it's yellow eye ring.

Thanks for posting the Mallorca images, I am off to Mallorca in a couple of weeks. I have probably left it to late but hopefully I will get a few of the breeders in the Salbufera reserve. Your images are fantastic.
