Elegant Avocets

By Glostopcat  
Todays upload is especially for epzer Mikbee to welcome him back to the site, yesterday he requested to see a picture of a slim elegant, long legged bird, so I've obliged by uploading a couple of shots of not one but two!Wink This pair of avocets were seen from the Rushy Pen hide at Slimbridge on Wednesday.

Did he really expect me to upload some pics of Kate Upton and Karlie Kloss clad in their bikinis, that would have really been heart attack material for the poor old boy!TongueTongueTongue
