Passing visitor and a real pleasure to see but he was shy and was hidden for a long time, I could only see a little of his head, but I'm pleased that I waited for him to come out and show himself

Very nice capture Jon, but that is what you call a beak, if your going to have one, go to the max .



Best regards Paul

Hi Paul, it's really quite amazing when you think how many different birds beaks there are, all evolved to suit their eating habits, see how far the Godwit as gone down in the sand or water in the first photo.

Hi TD

Thanks for your kind comments. Now if he stuck his beak in your eye, you really would have blood running
