Sadly no dotterel once again

Another attempt for dotterel on the Blorenge ended in abject failure. Had to be content with some impressive stands of hares tail cotton grass (Eriphorum vaginatum) and a calling red grouse. A rather shabby violet ground beetle (Carabus violaceus) was noted and the usual assemblage of upland birds were evident on return including stonechat and increased numbers of singing whinchat. I live to fight another day!
