I caught up with lots of them in Norfolk. The beach at Titchwell held quite a few, and that's where I took these pictures.
The sea was the calmest I've seen it here. Usually it's blowing a gale and it's really choppy. On this day you can see the waves just gently lapping while the birds go about their business.

Gorgeous little birds! Lovely images!ReplyDelete
I too love the curlews. According to an old saying here, when you hear their calls, the ice (that covers the lakes) is not strong enough any more to support your weight.ReplyDelete
Hello, I like the long curved bill on the Curlew! Beautiful birds and great photos.ReplyDelete
Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!
Beautiful. I've heard our North American species, and I'd have to agree with your "Nan"...they have a beautiful call.ReplyDelete
Wonderful images Adam....and, thanks for adding your link today at I'd Rather B Birdin'.
What a handsome bird with a perfect background of the water!ReplyDelete
Beautiful shot of the curlew. I'm not familiar with it but it has an interesting bill. Maybe I have seen them at the ocean and didn't pay enough attention, I was probably watching the water.ReplyDelete
Looks like he could dig deep for his lunch. Nice shots.ReplyDelete
