Black-tailed Godwit - Limosa limosa

Photographed at Llanelli, Wales, UK. It was a long way away and a dismal day, but I had to show you. There were about 350 asleep.

Please look at my website bobswildlife.co.ukThere is a photo of a Common Tealand  the Rabbit by Callum in  the 'Guest photographer'

  1. Hi Bob,
    this is another of your wow sets of images, super images on such a dismal day and in such numbers. We tend to get the odd bird, not 350.
    All the best, John

    1. Hi John, I'd only seen anything as big number, I was astonished at least 350.

  9. OOOHHH There's a lot of them! It's almost unbelievable.
    This species is not seen in such large numbers in my area. They're looking for quiet areas to take shelter.
    Good week Bob.

  12. Una colonia muy numerosa. Siendo inexperto en la fotografía de aves, al contrario que usted que es un maestro, me he encontrado en alguna ocasión al amanecer en playas de Sudamérica con grandes bandadas de aves que arrancan el vuelo al unísono y vuelan haciendo rápidos cambios en la trayectoria sin que haya sido capaz de captar fotografías satisfactorias posiblemente en mi afán de captarlo todo.
    Un abrazo,
