Spotted Redshank on the River Camel

Spotted Redshank

This spotted redshank was showing well this afternoon amongst a flock of over 100 common redshank along the side of the island in the River Camel right in the middle of town.

Just a few images of the many I took.

As the incoming tide started to reach the bird it went a little crazy and flew / ran about dunking itself in the rising water and drinking and cleaning itself. Made for some interesting pictures in great light.
