Our first new moth for a while.
And on the estuary this afternoon I somehow managed to creep up on this lovely Whimbrel - in my bright red car! It was having such a successful time feeding on juicy worms it just didn't seem to mind my being there. Usually when you pull up next to Whimbrel they immediately fly to the other side of the river. Photographic opportunities are therefore a bit thin on the ground so I was very pleased to get this one. I will now celebrate most self indulgently by boring you ( unless like me you really, really like Whimbrel) with far too many of my efforts.
