Curlew (Numenius arquata)

  11. Oh my goodness, Bob, I absolutely LOVE that beak, and what a gorgeous bird.
    Cloudy and dreary here too, but it's very warm for this time of year, and I'll take that!! :-)
    Happy day to you, my friend.

  16. Brilliant Bob, the first image is my favourite. I am always lost what to do composition wise with my Curlew images, these two have given me a shove in the right direction. Thank you.

  18. I like the rainy days, I love the autumn, but the shortage of light complicates the life of the photographers. Though nothing seems that it affects you;)

    excellent photographies, Bob
