    Czajka is coquettish, little ringed plover - curious, redshank - probably asleep. Cute pictures and my descriptions are those little jokes :-). Yours

  34. Hi there - splendid set of pictures. No need to worry about archive mining in this case.

    Spoonbills are rather splendid. I saw my first in (of all places) Lancashire - Leighton Moss to be precise - in the middle 1980's. It spent all of the time I watched it with its bill under its wing! Rather spoiled the impact!

    Have a good New Year.
