Great series of the oster catcher and the lapwing, and the coots are a hoot. I wonder if the magpie has a biscotti?
Thanks Wilma. The Coots are always entertaining this time of year. They seem to squabble just for the sake of it. lol
Great actions shots Keith, those Coots can be really nasty.
Another fantastic post. The Starlings of the waterfowl world are Coots.
Great sequence Keith and love your commentary. Oooooh dunking biscuits - loverly :D
Wow ! Great pics with Oystercatcher ! And clever magpie !Funny - your coots are always fighting ... I ever see them calm and peaceful here :))
Great shots Keith, especially the Lapwing having a ding dong with the Oystercatcher.
You always capture such drama from your lovely subjects. Always a joy to see your posts.
Lovely series... :) Nice action!!Regards,Angad
Very nice captures! I have not seen before a coots fight! :-) The Magpie is clever, his bread was too hard to eat I think :-)
Interestig action photos!
Great series of shots. I hadn't realised that lapwing would be so aggressive to other birds.
Coots are so entertaining and your photos capture that beautifully! Hope Jim didn't mind his water pot being commandeered by the Magpie :)
