Typical Island Grouping
Yep, flight shot!
We had four hours at Blacktoft Sands RSPB on Saturday before visiting a relative at nearby Scunthorpe.
Whilst we had heavy showers during the visit we also had sunny intervals. I took loads of shots mostly flight shots but most were rubbish, too distant, too dark, whatever.
Whilst we have seen plenty of Avocets at the reserve before, I think they had 90+ birds last year, we must have been at slightly different times before as certainly far more birds were sitting on eggs on the islands than we have seen before. The eggs looked to be left haphazardly, and the birds left them at times to return later.
