A wader captured during a visit to Pensthorpe RSPB reserve at the tail end of last year. It struck me as a very pretty and dainty little thing and I like it a lot.
My trouble is I cant seem to put a name to it !!BlushBlush Every distinguishing feature I try to check does not quite seem to fit. What a dumboSadSad Any help much appreciated.
Any help appreciated.
I am most appreciative for all the c/c's given to the Snowy Owl. Grateful thanks as ever.
