I always find black birds (as opposed to blackbirds) difficult.

Thanks Jack, this was from a slipway, there was two of them, but they were so fast.

And you never know where they'll bob up next, either - up/down, up/down, like little corks:rolleyes:

Nice one, Rob, but do you know why this species of Spoonbill has a naked head? The Eurasian doesn't and I assume their feeding habits are the same.

Thanks

Sorry I am not sure why they are different. This one is molting a bit on the neck area.
