Thirteen Avocets were my reward for an early morning visit to Cresswell on a beautiful spring morning. An hour later i was sitting in the Budge Screen not shivering, for a change. No wind, some heat in the sun, the air was filled with birdsong and the light was fantastic. Loads of interaction between the birds that were present with a couple of male Shoveler and numerous Lapwings the stars of the show. The Lapwings in particular, as was the case last time i visited the Budge Field, were mesmerising as they twisted and turned in flight. Aerial masters.
