Today took us to Hest Bank, just outside Morecambe and overlooking Morecambe bay, I had been here a while ago and saw plenty of waders but didn't have my camera at that time.
Today was no different plenty of waders most of which where way out on a sand patch, but with the tide coming in fast these where soon pushed inland.
The 1st picture is a Curlew, this one flew straight past me as I was trying to sneak up to a group of Redshank at the waters edge.
2nd pictures shows a pair of Curlew and some Oyster catchers, these where plentiful, long orange beaks wherever I looked.
I had tried to sneak across some big boulders which formed the water breaker by the car park because I could see Redshanks, Lapwings, Curlews and an Eider duck in the sea at the end of the boulders quite a way out.
Being 6'2" sneaking and stalking doesn't come naturally, but I got as close as I could and got the shot below, the shot that follows that shows what happened when I stood up too high.
The final shot was a surprise to me, I wasn't too sure what it was until I got home, but its a Skylark and there where about 7 -8 that where sticking together.
If this isn't a Skylark please leave a comment with your suggestion.
