What an excellent shot with all the detail we come to expect of you, Mike. I'm sure its only my anthropomorphism but she does seem to be looking quite nervous about the situation!

Thanks folks Smile
Yep, David you are quite right, these birds are very hyper when they have chicks around, there is always the constant threat of predation from gulls and birds of prey. This bird was very attentive, even chasing other Stilts when they got too close
