Frampton Marsh Redshank .....

Its a bit of a toss up, but these are arguably the best images of a Redshank that I have achieved to date.

Time of year ?, Light quality and direction ?, plumage ?, I'm really not quite sure other than to say that this bird was in stunning condition.
A quick visit today to TLNR, Chiffchaff, Sedge Warblers, Willow Warblers, Reed warblers and Blackcap are all now arriving back on the reserve ....  Nightingales and Cuckoo this week ?.


  1. Great shots John, interestingly someone already posted a video of a Nightingale calling up near you on Twitter.

  2. Hi Doug, yes, there are a few Nightingales already at Glapthorn Cow Pastures near Oundle.

  3. Nice images John, the Redshank is one of my favoured waders, after the Greenshank of course!

    1. Hi Paul, it really was a cracking visit with great birds.

      A friend of mine Graham Barker, a keen videographer, videod the visit.
