a (black) wing and a flyer

Upon hearing of the Black winged Pratincole at Bothal I raced up to be rewarded with the bird flying and some excellent views for No 292 on the life (Northumberland 290) list. After five minutes the bird settled on the far shore where it spent the next hour so I departed for tea.
Not exactly thrilled by my Friday evening itinerary I returned later where the bird was still sitting but half an hours patience was rewarded with the bird again in flight this time for ten minutes or more. Wonderful to watch with just the record shots for future reference.
