6th day of lockdown. These little-ringed plover started to display right in front of a permanent wooden hide we had on a shallow scrape. I really enjoy watching bird behaviour and as a photographer you get to see a lot of it close up. Seeing birds at a distance through binoculars has never really interested me.
