Who Am I ?

By SteveMoulding  
A shorebird but which one ? I'm not sure, I thought maybe a Whimbrel or Dowitcher ?

Which ever it is I'm sure someone in EPZ land will recognise this bird and inform the uneducated amongst us.

Many thanks for all your kind comments, votes and views on my attempt to be clever with photoshop, a little more practice by me is required, me thinks.

Have a good week.

Steve.

Hi Steve,
I think it might be a Curlew, which is similar to a Whimbrel but has a longer bill.
A Whimbrel also has a striped crown and a marked eyebrow which "who am I" does not have! lol.

well detailed capture
Thanks, Tim, At first I thought maybe a Curlew but decided against that because of the length of the beak, too short compared with the photos in my guide.
