Curlew Sandpiper - Burton Mere
A look back to the Summer months, when I took a trip to the Wirral and Burton Mere wetlands. A couple of year ticks were added, in the shape of this Curlew Sandpiper with its superbly curved bill, and a Green Sandpiper.
Both birds stayed fairly distant, but thankfully the light was quite decent. Here is the Curlew Sandpiper.
Showing typical stance.
