It’s that time of the year again! Dotterels are passing by Switzerland now on their way to Africa. Two of them stopped at the Suchet recently and as usual it was a pleasure to see this beautiful species close to home… Tried to obtain a few original images, which is not easy because it is a species already well photographed by many bird watchers and photographers. I was happy with some of the images I took, which is quite rare!

I do not often take B&W images of wildlife, but this one stands out nicely !

The Suchet is not only about Dotterels, the evening views are just absolutely amazing! One more reason to spend time there in late summer…
