Redshank (one bird present)
Sometimes it is nice to leave the busyness of the cliffs and just sit and relax in a different environment and Thornwick Pool fits the bill! Although this morning was relatively quiet (birdwise) but you never know what might drop in, so it retains an element of excitement! In the couple of hours that I spent there, a few photographic opportunities presented themselves, although the excitement didn't materialise!
Young Coot are so ugly but retain a degree of cuteness!
Dunlin with Ringed Plover
I always thought that Dunlin's black bellies were black feathers. Now I know it is as a result of running through goose poo!
