I couldn't get out until mid afternoon, the light was awesome so I went for a second look at the Spotted Redshank - which was in a very obliging mood :-)
Coming ever closer....
I know how you feel! A bit of a leg stretch.....
And then the wings!
Here's a little mystery.... How did all the fish he's eating get into a flooded field? Presumably connecting via a ditch or the nearby canal somehow?? All the fish I saw caught appeared to be Sticklebacks.
This has to be the largest Stickleback I've ever seen!
A bit of alignment....
Then down the hatch!
Such a smart wader and definitely worth the second visit!
Three Dunlin were also present.
