Dunlin

Another common Wader seen along our shores in Winter.
Can be observed feeding along the shore line and with regard to someone with my Bird Identification skills {:)) could at first appear like a Sanderling, but doesn't move about so fast and is larger.




Seen below with a Bar-tailed Godwit in the background.


Seen below with Redshank in the background.

  3. Lovely photos, Roy!
    I see you had a spell of good weather here :)
    I really enjoy seeing these waders, a pity I live too far from the sea.
    Nice post!
    Keep well!

  7. Hey Roy.... I am so jealous of your header, they are in bloom already?
    Very nice post, and photos of shore birds. Especially like when they stand on one leg : )

    1. Thanks GG, yes there are quite few Primroses at some locations where the sun gets at them all day. Not so many in the woodland there though.
