Venus Pool - Spotted Redshank

There aren't many in a year but this was definitely a VP day and the North bay (which has been looking awesome for a while) turned up the goods! 2 Greenshank, 4 Green Sandpiper, 1 Common Sandpiper, 1 Dunlin, 3 Ruff but no doubt at all about the star of the show......

This long awaited County (for me anyway) Spotted Redshank!

The water is pretty distant from all the hides right now but it was showing pretty well from the North hide!



Things got even better as it walked closer....



And closer.....



Admiring it's own reflection?



Having the decency to choose a patch of 'darker' water in front of the hide and somehow managing to avoid the electric fence being in the way!











A bit repetitive as I can't decide which images I like best - you can't have too much of a good thing though.....
