We all have moments, some are unusual, some are special, some are unpredictable. But just occasionally a moment can have all three together. Our hearts stopped when we suddenly came face to face with this beautiful creature (juvenile Dotterel), at no more than 5ft distance next to the car on September 9th. It was feeding in a very recently ploughed strip on the edge of a large field. Its the 3rd Buckton record after a flock of 15 in August 2006.
