20100903 233 Whimbrel NX2 SERIES.jpg

Shirley's Bay

Four images of a Whimbrel. An other first for me, also captured on my lucky Sept 3rd.

Top Image: Side view and reflection.

Front view.

Whimbrel in Flight. Several times the Whimbrel would take short hops/flights to a better spot on the mud-flats. On two occasions it flew off with all the other Shorebirds as a Peregrine came out hunting. After the second such incident, it did not return.

Whimbrel landing after a short flight to an other feeding spot.
