Musselburgh Estuary ~Redshank, Curlew & Blackheaded Gull (no black head in winter)

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps after a second review [?]

Couldn't resist this. The Curlew was just strolling along minding his own business ignoring all in his path

THAT is brilliant Nik

What a poser!

I love everything about this one.... even the sand texture behind the birds.

Brilliant lass - Jethro

Thanks Jethro, the Curlew was intent on wading along in the water and I could see the Redshank along the way. Waited a wee while and hey presto - the 3 of them all in one place. Thanks for the praise, much appreciated.

Amazing to have captured three birds with one shot!

All you bird photos are beautiful.

Best wishes from Michigan,

Thank you Doerthe, I was just lucky to be in the right place at the right time. It was a beautiful winter the day and the colours were nice and strong, with good reflections on the water. So glad you like it also. Regards, Nik

a very nice picture!


Greetings from Greece
