Redshank along the Shoreline

The Redshank (Tringa totanus) is a common wader in the British Isles. 
In Winter it can be seen mainly along the coast and is fairly approachable as its too busy finding food. In the breeding season it becomes very wary and will fly off if disturbed.

  2. Ik vind vooral de erste heel mooi om hem ondanks zijn schutkleur hem er zo mooi uit te lichten.
