Venus Pool - Greenshank gone fishing

The Dunlin which has been hanging around for a few days has departed but in addition to the 6  Green Sandpipers present today, we have a Greenshank dropping in...




They have a varied diet, including fish and this one was totally reoccupied with fish - feeding Avocet style except to was a straight line rather than sweeping action! And it was quite happy to try the trawler technique in deeper water!

 

In the shallows...



And success!






Down the hatch!


Even the gulls ended up copying him!!
