The wind turbines and the rows of gulls and waders in the distance
Let me know when that tide's coming in won't you

Redshank - Hoylake
The beach at Hoylake always holds many birds. It's a joy to wander along and watch the flocks of Dunlin and Sanderling flash against the sky, but then see hundreds or thousands of gulls and Oystercatchers sat on the muddy looking flats after the tide has retreated. Redshanks are usually in good numbers too, and here is one particular individual that was enjoying the gorgeous winter sunshine whilst looking for its food.

It's good to find a sunny day lately Adam. You really captured the red of that Redshank's legs, almost translucent in the sunlight.ReplyDelete
Great Redshanks images, and wind turbines don't seem to upset the birds.ReplyDelete
Funny how that same little bird species as in your top photo also wanders the beach edge in my neck of the woods. It is often a step ahead of me when I try to take its picture.ReplyDelete
Love the reflections in that 2nd pic, Adam.ReplyDelete

We kept a shack by the coast for three years and whilst there would walk along the beach at low tide. It was divine. Please feel free to remind me regularly of the beach.
All the best, Derek
Interesting to see the wind turbines have reached your area as well. They are all over the countryside here in Iowa!ReplyDelete
