Nice shots of a couple of not-so-glamorous water birds.

Note: the EXIF info for my recent images shows "Sony FE 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 GM OSS". I'm actually shooting an FE 200-600mm f/5.6-6.3 G OSS lens. The POTN gear database needs to be updated.

I spotted this little Common Sandpiper far away at the edge of the reservoir and he was walking along the edge towards me. I was focused on him and waiting for him to get closer to me. Then from no where a black headed gull, dived onto him. He turned around and was off like a shot back to where I first spotted him. Ten minutes later again he started to walk towards me, he got exactly to the same location and that gull annoyingly harassed him. Yes he was off back to the start. third time lucky I thought. I kept him in sight knowing he would get to me eventually. I kept looking up from the corner of my eye for the gull, he was not around. I was saying to my self "come-on you beauty hurry up before that bloody gull comes back". The gull then landed in front of me about 8 metres away and was waiting for him. The Sandpiper still milling around and coming forward now about 25 metres away. I Found my-self shouting out "Shoo, go on hop it, Shoo, leave him alone" waving my monopod around with gear attached the gull took flight. The Sandpiper soon walked right passed me and gave me a look. it was a look of thanks mate. I got my shots. He carried on with his route to the other side of the reservoir.....Sometime​s you just got to do these things. I don't like bullies.

many thanks Mike

Robert thats a Portrait with the lot.
Lovely detail and concentration of the bird
very nice indeed

I do like your low down shots. A very different perspective. Effectively shows them off in their natural environs

Gorgeous Kingfisher,
Beautiful colours and detail.

Love the composition of this.
very pretty small bird.

That's cute, and detailed. A beautiful small bird with such an enquiring look.
Very nicely captured.

Thank you, Avondale.
