Default Black-tailed Godwit

Went to Fairburn Ings again today but it was really blowing a gale Very difficult for the birds as well as me. Managed to get some shots of a black-tailed godwit that was braving the wind and choppy waters to feed. It nearly got blown over a couple of times but kept on feeding. C&C welcome, exif intact

Nice series Kevin, I know it's not easy shooting with a big lens in heavy winds

How on earth did you manage to keep so steady Kevin - that water looks so turbulent!
Very nice.

Thanks Alex. Leaning on a fence post with my arm resting across the lens seemed to work but it was extremely windy
