.. AVOCET ..

By Magpiemick  
Taken at Elmley RSPB, Isle of Sheppey, Kent..
This is one of my favourite reserves, isolation and its unpredictability of a rarity turning up..
If you've never been its worth the effort with a 1.4km walk alone to the first hide and from there 2.8km to last hide then you have the return journey.....but don't let that put you off waders and wetland birds in huge numbers....

Anyway this Avocet is one of the 700 that was there on saturday...
