Almost a sepia image ......

A very heavy onshore wind was really ruffling this Curlews feathers, there are few hiding places on the salt marsh mudflats if you need to feed and replenish your energy levels.

The Curlew really is a master of disguise and from above must present little evidence of their presence to predators, they are also ( I seem to recall )  our largest wader so maybe not at the top of the list with smaller and potentially more vulnerable species more attractive to a quick stoop and swoop.
