An Avocet today, an iconic bird for many conservationists and a fabulous looking bird for photographers. Here's what the RSPB have to say.

A distinctively-patterned black and white wader with a long up-curved beak. It is the emblem of the RSPB and symbolises the bird protection movement in the UK more than any other species. Its return in the 1940s and subsequent increase in numbers represents one of the most successful conservation and protection projects.

Cheers and many thanks for yesterdays v's & c's
