While in Norfolk we came across several groups of Golden Plover. I've never got that close to them, but this time we spotted one lone individual on some mudflats. It kindly let us drive up and park alongside it, which gave me a good opportunity to put the lens out of the window and snap away. The colours are quite beautiful.
Really quite unusual to be able to get this close to the Golden Plover. Just 20 feet away.
This is my favourite shot.
The golden yellow really stands out. I am surprised the vehicle didn't frighten it away.ReplyDelete
Oh my goodness, I've never seen one of these. Such a golden yellow, so aptly named. Your photos are gorgeous. And I too think the last one is best...tho, all are fabulous.ReplyDelete
Beautiful bird. He's keeping an eye on you.ReplyDelete
Beautiful colour!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.ReplyDelete
Great photos of the Golden Plover. It looks similar to our Pacific Golden Plover (Puvialis fulva).ReplyDelete
Terrific captures of this little beauty!ReplyDelete

As you know I had 150+ on patch this week, never ever going to be close enough to match these, so well done mate
Wonderful bird - I managed to see a few waders coming into breeding plumage this month - a bit of a treat really!ReplyDelete

Oh he is beautiful and certainly aptly named! He just shines! I always like watching plovers as the walk along the beach -- they seem so purposeful...ReplyDelete
