Curlew Sandpipers

Three Curlew Sandpipers were showing very well indeed on Black Hole Marsh this morning. Great to see these on patch again, after what I think was a Curlew Sand free year last year.

Curlew Sandpiper and Dunlin ( a very small Dunlin at that)
Here he is again, certainly made me look twice!

A couple of shots of all three having a bit of a quarrel.

Also a bit of video of all three Curlew Sands feeding.

One final addition, this evening I popped down to BHM again to see if anything new had turned up. It hadn't. But I did get a nice addition to my 'naughty birders' series of photos! :-)
