This morning’s photo from Dairy Road shows a Black-fronted Dotterel with a field of droplets on the nylon mesh evidently used to protect the coming crop of turf.  Despite what you might think, the mesh did not seem to affect the foraging bird.  Alert followers of this chatline and the royal funeral arrangements might have noticed that the same type of aircraft recently shown from the same point in this series was used yesterday to fly Princess Anne and Her Majesty’s coffin from Edinburgh to London, a C-17 Globemaster.  According to The Scotsman the same individual aircraft was used in operations in Afghanistan and Ukraine.
