Wood Lane - Black-tailed Godwits!

With VP in the doldrums, headed North! At least Wood Lane has the Meds for interest.... attention was switched late afternoon however as a small group of waders flew in from the North - six of them - Black tailed Godwits......



 They were dropping out of view behind the long narrow island....


 When five of them decoded to land - remaining in view.



Too distant for anything other than record shots, eventually, a buzzard spooked the whole reserve and the Godwits relocated to the scrape (and so did I!)  Here's one in flight.





Some nice reflections were possible. 4....

They were getting a little nervous and jumpy!


It's the Lapwing effect!




Eventually, getting some peace to feed up!


They were gone the following morning!
