Hi Bob, It is a beautiful photo of the Curlew Greetings from Bavaria Crissi
Superb Bob... They have arrived here too and it is nice to see them again!
Hi Bob,Lovely shots, but this is a Whimbrel, even better!! Note the shorter bill and stripes on the head.Cheers,Lewis.
Nice too see this lovely bird, lovely pictures Bob.regards, Joop
Thanks to Lewis, I will change everything. There, it's done.
I had a good friend who lived on Curlew Drive back home. I knew a curlew was a bird but never gave it much thought. Now I know what a curlew looks like. Thanks for teaching me something, Bob.
i saw these on another UK blog yesterday. i think they're lovely birds. you got some great shots. :)
Bob,die Fotos sind Dir wieder gut gelungen. Eigentlich ist der Vogel gar nicht so leicht in dieser Umgebung auszumachen.Liebe GrüßeIrmi
Lovely bird Bob..........I'm looking for it's more common cousin the Curlew. You beat me again...you deserve to.
Nice series of the Whimbrel. Lovely bird. have a nice week.
Sometimes I wish we had those here too. I guess the surrounding environment and survival make them look the way they are - especially the beaks. Hope all is well Bob. Anna :)
Nice pics Bob not an easy bird to get close too tried on many an occasion.
Lovely photos, Bob taken in such a fabulous place:)As for my arm - well, they say they fixed it and I try to believe them!
I can see why they would be a fav, as they are quite cool looking birds and it is always so neat when they just seem to hide in their surroundings so brilliantly~
Amigo,Um pássaro maravilhoso muito bem camuflado em seu habitat... fotos maravilhosas, detalhistas.Beijinhos.Brasil °º♫°º✿º° ✿♥ ♫° ·.
Cracking shots Bob, especially the first one. Not often I get to see these fine birds; and never get a picture as good as these.
Wow.. wonderful shots. Look at that beak!
Your photos really show how well it camouflages with its surroundings!
beautiful capture of that bird !love it too !
beautiful bird!great shots!
Congratulations to Lewis for spotting it was a Whimbrel. Most of what we saw, and heard, were Curlews so I wasn't bothering to check them over properly. This makes up for me seeing the Corncrake when you only heard it Bob :-)
A ave é muito bonita.As fotos estão encantadoras.Boa semana!Beijinhos.Br
brilliant shots, bob!
