...I was convinced the Crab was going to win, he became lunch for the persistent Curlew on the beach infant of my cottage, Taken at the long end of my 100-400mm lens and still too short.

Excellent Dougie. I always wondered what curlews ate with beaks like that. Now I know.

I understand they eat sand worms and have seen them pull them out of the sand,

Beautifully worked sequence Dougie, though I prefer my crabs dressed.
Nevertheless itís a Superb image those wickedly curved bills ferret out anything and at the end of the
day they have to eat too.
