A distant, cropped shot of three in a row on the muddy margins of the Ferry Pool at Siddlesham. (The green smudges were foliage close to the lens!)
From left to right .. Avocet, Black-tailed Godwit and an Oystercatcher.
The Avocet adults were happy to let the Godwit pass by their resting youngster BUT the Oystercatcher was definitely not a welcome intruder. The defiant sideways glance was enough to deter the Oystercatcher treading any closer.
A Magpie at Tices Meadows where I also caught up with a Little Stint and my 4th only UK sighting of a Pectoral Sandpiper in the last 10 years. Unfortunately both these waders were too far distant for the lens.
While wandering alongside a watercourse in Bushy Park a Red Doe very quietly emerged from the lush green foliage, continued to feed and totally ignored my presence. After about 10 minutes she slowly wandered away but still kept a beady eye on you know who!
