Hi today i have this in flight shot of some Redshanks taken a couple of weeks ago, hope you like it. Been a warm sunny day here today

As its name suggests, redshanks' most distinctive features are their bright orange-red legs. They have a medium-length bill with an orange base to match, brown speckled back and wings and paler belly.

Wonderful in-flight photography, every bird being pin-sharp.
I like the colour saturation, it really makes their red legs & beaks stand out.
