The happy couple
Thursday, 5 June 2014
I tried for this bird last year and messed up my timings by a matter of days. This time I thought I'd catch it at the beginning of it's migration to this country. So about a month ago I made a very early start to get down to the Norfolk, Suffolk border to look for these very unusual looking birds. The Stone Curlew is one of our earliest returning migrants. Making it's nest on the ground, it scurries around in quite a comical fashion. Anyway, I manage to see one (actually 5) for the first time, and I enjoyed every minute of those two hours watching them.
