I wasn't sure if this Dotterel was sitting on eggs or not. Didn't want to disturb it just in case.

If you've not already, it's worth reporting this sighting with date location etc. to the Highland Bird Recorder http://www.highlandbirds.scot/recording.html

Montane species are rather unrecorded and sightings like yours are valuable.

Forgive me if you know all this and have already reported.
