Family Gathering

By cats_123  
Redshanks are often seen singly but today i found them grouped together like a family.

Tringa totanus - The Common Redshank is a wader which breeds throughout Europe and northern Asia. During winter months, these birds migrate to the Mediterranean coastline, southern Asia, and the Atlantic coast of Europe south of Great Britain. This species prefers to nest in wetlands, such as damp meadows and salt marshes. They nest in highly dense colonies throughout European and Asian territories. The preferred diet of the Common Redshank is small invertebrates
