Golden plover

I went in search of barn owls near Hepworth this morning but they proved elusive, one showing only in the hole of the barn.  On my way home, I traversed a few narrow country lanes and came across this young golden plover with a damaged wing.  Still able to raise it, but I didn’t see him fly and am not sure he can.  I hope he survives.
