    I dunno … that strolling sounds a bit like hard work.

    If I can summon the energy, I might drive down to the coast to see if I can photograph some hooded plovers. I know a spot where they hang around on a stretch of beach right below a car park.

    Hooded Plovers are worth quite an effort to see, I’d have thought. For me, it would take an 80 minute drive and then about an hour or two or more of slogging through the beach sand with no guarantee of a sighting… just the thought of it makes me tired.
