Venus Pool - Blackwit up close!

The most likely decent wader to turn up at VP  just lately is Black-tailed Godwit but they usually remain distant! With a Greenshank, 2 Green Sandpiper and 10 Common Snipe now present, this juvenile Blackwit was the star turn.....


Preening but just about to be harassed by a Lapwing!


The landing was brief as yet another Lapwing gave it some grief....




I wasn't complaining, just struggling to keep up with the affay!




Eventually allowed to settle down and feed - another tasty worm......




A wader a day, keeps Jim happy :-)
