Venus Pool - Whimbrel

I missed one earlier in the week but a big thanks to Rob for giving me the heads up on the second Whimbrel to drop in this week!

Stubbornly distant on the middle island, a brief flight gave a chance of wing detail.

And then, it was joined by the 'confusion' suspect! Except, does a Whimbrel look anything like a Curlew?

Little and large!

En garde!

I mentioned the other day about common birds coming uncommonly close! I was photographing a small fly when unbelievably, a Little Ringed Plover entered the frame!!

That fly was a goner!

As the LRP stood there calling to his mate.
