Curlew + Redshank feeding on flooded salt-marsh

By brian1208
Shot yesterday on Hengistbury Head when a very high tide had flooded the salt marsh region.

This patch was alive with a wide variety of wild fowl and waders and the good light (at last) gave me the chance to try out the EM-1 + 75-300 mk2

I like the foreground reeds, Brian; they make it feel as though I am looking into a different world.
Detailing is very good. Hengistbury Head sounds like a birders paradise.

Thanks all Smile

Yes Simon, Hengistbury Head and Stanpit Marsh on the other side of the estuary are a fabulous location for bird life of all kinds with some interesting migrants now and then
