Decided early in the morning to head up to Guilderton and make the most of the nice weather before the nasty storm arrives. Nearly 6 pm now and nothing has happened ye

This is a Wood Sandpiper, I've only managed to see them very long distances away. A very shy bird. I was so Very lucky yesterday 3 of them were with 2 common and 5 Green Sandpipers. It was good to see the 3 very similar varieties together and to compare the colours/sizes/characte​ristics.

The 2nd photo was taken 100+ metres away is heavily cropped. But a good record shot. I was surprised to see on the RSPB web site that there are only 11-25 pairs in the UK.

I am very privileged. :-)

This is great. The birds I see dont eat fish. They stand in the water and wait for McDonalds or something. I wish I could get a shot like that!!!

I can never tell the difference between punk birds and grunge birds. Great shot, by the way
