Ruffs

At the same time as I photographed the Greenshank at Filey Dams in my last post I also managed some pictures of Ruffs when they landed in front of the East Hide. These shots are a few of my early processed pictures.

This is the first time I have pictured this species so I was pleased. The next day we went to Top Hill Low but whilst an identical number of Ruff were on South Marsh East Lagoon (3) they were too far off for decent pictures, there was also three Curlew Sandpipers. This last Friday we visited Potteric Carr but on a lovely day I got no decent pictures.

Hi Mike,
Lovely shots! My favourite is the last one, with the little drop of water on the birds bill.

Superb shot Mike. I've seen one last week when I saw the Wilson's phalarope in the morning. The camera was home and when I went back in the vening the phalarope was still there but not the ruff. It is not a common bird in Iceland and we rarely see them, so I was quite mad ;-)
