Redshank Fight

By iancam
Redshank (Tringa Totanus)

Thank you all for your comments and the Awards from Mandy - Terry. They are very much appreciated.

I was taking pics of the little ringed plover when this fight happened. I swung the camera around and started shooting. These are the best two shots. I do like these birds, but they do seem to be picked on by all the other birds.

ISO400 - F8 - 1/640 - 500mm - Tripod - Remote Control.

I will catch up with your postings over the weekend. Have a great weekend everyone.

Ian

A couple of excellent shots Alan; love the sunshine and sparkle off that water - it looks so inviting! And great detail with the fight, particularly love the action in #2, with the escape from the banished loser and the proud victor
