More Dotterels - best year ever?

Dawn saw another flock of Dotterel at the cairn on the limestone pavements. This time four birds popped their heads over the ridge before flying down the slope towards the gunsite. I'm pretty sure they settled in this area as they certainly didn't fly off high. This flock added to others seen this year, totals fourteen birds - surely the best year ever for this species here. Other migrants this morning included a female Common Redstart, the poorly marked Ring Ouzel in it's usual hawthorn, 2 White Wagtails, a Yellow Wagtail, 12 Tree Pipits amd 50+ Wheatears.
