Always a great bird to see, especially in its moorland breeding habitat.
Only the cliche` will suit: a very strange bird!
Wonderful crisp images, Bob! I'm hoping I might find a Curlew when I have a trip up onto the moors one day next week, but I think I'm probably too late. Fingers are crossed. My very best wishes - - - Richard
Hi RichardI hope that one may still find it moorland, my fingers are crossed.
The bird is tired ;-)

Hi Bob,Great bird! Very nice captured! I like the Melancholy call! Happy weekend,Maria
A monochromatic beauty.
Lovely series of photo's of the Curlew.Like your music choice today …All the best Jan
Maybe it's the long beak but they always look happy to me. Ours look to have longer legs but that could be because yours is standing in long grass. Love their call.
Lovely bird. I always think they look happy. Ours look to have longer legs but that could be because yours is standing in long grass. Love their call.

I love the third shot - was it looking at the sky and trying to decide if it's going to rain?
