Male Redshank on Post

By ron thomas      
This very loud Redshank was (quite rightly) no too happy about me being close to his nest. Although it was OK for humans to pass by in vehicles, when they got out, well that was something else! I have composed this with the bird on the intersection of the upper right third, which I am quite happy with but the barbed wire does not get any support as it leaves the frame. This I am not happy about but I thought I would "go with it".

Can't ever recall seeing one perched on a post, perhaps he's having a bit of personality complex and thinks he's a Robin Smile

Well spotted Ron....Ade
