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

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.
