The Wirral provides a fantastic habitat for wading birds. On the rocks of West Kirby, along with the Turnstones were good numbers of Redshank. As is often the case here, they were busy shielding their eyes from the strong breeze blowing in off the sea. Others were even busier on the beach. Running around and looking for a nice meal.
Checking out the sleeping Turnstone.
Head on into the wind.
He's a cool bird, and well-named too!ReplyDelete

Wonderful photos and birds.ReplyDelete
Funny that they head into the wind. I guess they don't want their feathers ruffled. Nice pictures.ReplyDelete
Great photos - I especially like the ones with the bird stepping so carefully through the water.ReplyDelete
It looks like they had a bit of a breeze that day. Great shots of all.ReplyDelete
Such cool looking birds! Love the walking shots!ReplyDelete
Must be the season for these waders as I've been out spotting them as well. Your photographs are far superior though!ReplyDelete
Wonderful series images of the birds.ReplyDelete
Oh those bright legs..I always wonder why some waterfowl and shore birds have such brightly colored feet.. Great series Adam.... MichelleReplyDelete
I shared it to my G+ I hope you don't mind. :>
The Redshanks are beautiful. Love the rocks and wave action!ReplyDelete
Now this is a bird I often see up n the Normandy coast, possibly because it is one I am confident in identifying! #AnimalTalesReplyDelete
BeeN offline for a while and was caught up again marveling at your header shot ... Like opening a gift all over again. Love today's birds too... Modeling their beautiful red Legs! I never thought about birds shielding their eyes before, but it makes perfect sense!ReplyDelete
