Whixall floods - Spoonbill comes much closer!!

I had a huge dilemma - Channel Wagtail is flitting around to the west side of the road and now overhead - the Spoonbill!! And it's landing on the flood right by the road on the east side!! Given that I hadn't seen it feeding close up, I opted for the Spoonbill (for the time being).....






Zooming in a little closer....




And of course, it was feeding......


Catching small Sticklebacks!








Seen from another angle, some of the Sticklebacks were not so small!


Lining it up......


Then down the hatch :-)


A couple of portraits to finish with....




And then, my time was up - I had to leave but at least the close up pics were sorted.....
