On this day (May 9th) - Whimbrel

A logjam of riches from the previous day, mean this Whimbrel is 'carried over' from the previous day. Getting back to the wader theme!

I decided to nip back to Venus Pool and pretty glad I did! As I walked through the hide door, Geoff Holmes remarked - "here's Lucky Jim"! A Whimbrel had just dropped in - not far out in front of the hide.....

Looking a bit nervous and flighty too!

But going to great lengths to show us his salient features!

And then not just a wingflap.....

 A lapwing finally got a taste of his own medicine!!

Two minutes later - looking settled and then.......

Gone! And I missed the take off :-(
