Golden Plover in the Axe Valley

I headed out on the bicycle in the sleet/snow/rain after work as a text from Steve alerted me to the presence of 300+ Golden Plover near to the A3052. The view from Cownhayne lane was okay, although the distance wasn't ideal (the birds were usually about 200 metres or so away). The light was appalling for photography; it was pretty dark at 16:00 and the rain didn't help the clarity of the images. They're the first ones I've ever seen believe it or not, and here are some (terrible) pics of them:

I'll give it another go tomorrow if there's any light left by the time I finish work.
