My Angel

Redshank (Tringa totanus)

The Redshank is a large sandpiper with long, bright red legs. It is a typical wader, feeding in shallow water around lakes, marshes, mudflats and coastal wetlands.

It is widespread in the UK, but breeding birds are especially prevalent in Scotland and Northern England.

Photo taken at Wader lake WWT Washington in May 2018

Not sure if it's taking off or landing but, you have captured the action - and the splash - very well indeed, Dave.
