Plovers' concerto

The most notable thing this evening was the presence at Freeman's Pools of another pair of little ringed plover. One of the original pair was on the island with the 3 chicks while a further 3 adults (presumably including one of the breeders) were on the upper pools following each other noisily around and feeding in a tight little trio.
Wildfowl was virtually absent, doubtless due to the low flying paragliders (if that's what they're called - big manned kites with engines on...)
Still reasonable numbers of painted ladies kicking around.
