There was a lovely Redshank in front of Horrocks hide at Pennington Flash the other day. It's funny how when you've not seen a bird for a while you forget lots of features about it. I saw this little bird go wading past my line of sight and thought oh what's that? It seemed really quite small, and I didn't for a minute think it was a Redshank. I've no idea why, but there it was in all its glory. It just made me think I'd forgotten about its size.
Anyway it was happy picking around the shore line and preening itself, and I was happy to watch it do just that.

Hello Adam, just stopping back to say thank you so much for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!ReplyDelete
It's true that we sometimes forget how small some of the shorebirds truly are, especially if we take photographs that make them look big. Glad you realized you had a lovely bird close enough to take photos of!ReplyDelete
