During our week in Mallorca we had seen and heard plenty of Stone Curlews, photographing them was another story though. From past experience I know that these birds are very unapproachable, even at 100m they will start to move away from you. Having seen them distantly from a hide each evening it was on our last night, in fact
only an hour and a half before we were due to check in for our flight home, we had some amazing good luck. They came closer and closer to the hide until we were able to take frame filling shots of them, the best end to the week that we could have hoped for.
