Crownhill Down, Dartmoor

Late afternoon, 179 Golden Plover above Crownhill Down (counted from flight photo). Flock then landed on the top of the down. Seen from the bridleway.

Single Curlew in the huge Tungsten West/Drakelands flooded pit (viewed from the top of the down). The 11th wader species seen in the pit since July 2021.
