Kittlitz's Plover



A walk along the beaches on the Atlantic coast west of Cape Town found us watching a family of kittlitz's plover - a very dainty and attractive species. The juveniles (two) had an uncanny knack to disappear under the seaweed and were actually very difficult to see as they scuttled across the shingle.

You'll catch your death jetting between South Africa and Cramlington every post. Great pics though

Thanks Pete, at least this cold miserable weather has given me a chance to process some images!
