Fighting Redshanks

It's the time of year when I start tidying up my hard drives of the years images, putting the monthly shots into species lists and ruthlessly getting rid of anything that won't be usable. It's while doing this that I often discover photographs that I had forgotten I had taken or ones that have never been looked at. Over the next few months I will post some of these images as I work my way through them.


These Redshanks were photographed back in February, I was lying on the beach photographing a Bar-tailed Godwit when a single Redshank landed in front of me and started to feed, soon another arrived and they started calling, next there was an aggressive confrontation as they locked bills and tried to kick one another, all over in a few seconds they went on their separate ways as if nothing had happened.

You never cease to amaze me Steve. What beautiful detail and clarity on their feathers.

I loved all of these posts. A lot of these things we have, but I got some really great ideas. Wildlife Photography is one of the best ways to show to a broader public the values and the necessity of hunting and wildlife management.
