Stone Curlews

Whilst up at the BTO's head office in Thetford, Norfolk for an 'A Focus on Nature' workshop day (more about that in my next blogpost) I spent two evenings at Weeting Heath, a nature reserve that is managed primarily for the rare Stone Curlew...

People often complain they are distant at this site, but they showed very well (particularly on the second night) for us...

With so many birds at this site (at least 6), things began to hot up with numerous birds displaying!

Things very quickly began to get violent!

And the result of such violence, feathers everywhere (oh how I was hoping for one of those feathers to drift into the hide!!)

  1. It was brilliant to watch with you and the gang. A really great set of images.
