Dotterel in Snow (Charadrius morinellus)

I took the opportunity of a late snow fall to venture in to the Cairngorm Mountains to search for the recently returned Dotterels. The Cairngorms gifted me with one of the finest days I've ever had both in relation to the weather and the five Dotterels I managed to find, I was so glad I'd made the effort to trudge up through the foot of mew snow, I enjoyed the day so much I stayed up there until 10pm.
