There is a fence between the path and their possible nest site, but all they can see is a predator, so I can't really blame them for making a fuss.
What it does allow me to do though, is to sit and wait for a golfer to walk past, and get ready with my camera.
Strutting his stuff on the golf course.
Annoyed that I didn't quite get the full wing on this one.
Coming in to land on the old runway.
Excellent shots of the curlew. Interesting beak, legs and wings.ReplyDelete
Hello, awesome series on the Curlew. Beautiful bird! Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!ReplyDelete
Fabulous flight shots. Hope you will pop in to see mine today, and have a WONDERFUL week ahead.ReplyDelete
Great close up flying shots. When I was in the Australian Navy there was a Mine Sweeper named HMAS Curlew. I tried my 1sty attempt at photographing some flying overhead Seagulls last week. I soon discovered that it's not as easy as it one would think so you did an awesome job of these shots.ReplyDelete
Beautiful flight shots!ReplyDelete
Those are the best images of a Curlew in flight I've ever seen. Beautiful.ReplyDelete
your flight captures are amazing, very well done!!!ReplyDelete
Curlews are real good parents aren't they?. Nice flight shots Adam.ReplyDelete
You've gotten some fabulous flight shots of them!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for linking in at I'd Rather B Birdin'. The post was wonderful. Your photos terrific for all of us birders this weekend!!
Golf courses are a favorite of mine for nature pics. The beasts become very accustomed to humans...
Great capture of the curlew in flight. Apart from the bill it does have good camouflage.ReplyDelete
Glorious flight pictures this week.ReplyDelete
Spectacular! I don't think I've ever seen a curlew in real life, they look magnificent in flight in your photos. #AnimaltalesReplyDelete
Curlew are stunning birds and I love their eerie call as much as their beautiful curved beaks and gorgeous feather markings. #AnimalTalesReplyDelete
