Saturdays Critters – Spur winged plovers

Yesterday I saw this pair of Spur winged plovers doing a dance. 

Very interesting pair and what happened . First they flew on the sports field. They stood up and spread their wings and one stood on the other,

then they parted back to back and walked away.

Then one followed another bird and repeated this performance.

Parting again back to back 

and the other one followed its partner and repeated it again.

Interesting birds. I know this is a bird ritual
