Black-tailed Godwit / Grutto (Limosa limosa)

Black-tailed Godwit / Grutto (Limosa limosa)
He came too close...

The whole colony was up in the air, alarmed by a buzzard passing over.

Thanks very much, Gary. A bit of a pity though that they were pretty much between me and the sun! There's always something, isn't it? :)

Dank je wel, Chris!

Oh, je kunt ze bijna niet missen. Het zijn snelle vliegers, poten steken ver uit en ze maken veel lawaai! :)

Nice & crisp! And here I thought I was the only one who shot partial birds. LOL!

Just dropping by for a quick visit. I am slowly returning and must continue my rounds. I shall return.

It's a pleasure to see you back, Jim, but please don't feel obliged to catch up or anything!

As to partial birds, yes, he came too close but I liked the shot anyway. :) :)
Thank you so much!
