These were taken the same day as the 'Gulls in Flight' shots.

1 - a Long-billed Curlew poking about in a muddy field






2 - a Teal on sea water






3 - ditto






4 - ditto






Comments welcome

Looks like he was using all of that bill to find grub in the mud.

That Curfew is an elusive bird in our parts. I saw them only once several years ago, a flock flying high.
You got yours loud and clear, and probably at quite a distance too.
The teal is nicely bobbing on those waves, and the scene conveys a sense of poor weather and light. Yet, your exposure worked and colours have a good veracity as far as I can tell.

You may wish to experiment a bit more with framing of those ducks. Like using some sort of a landscape format as opposed to a squarish frame.

Nice shots David, the Curlew's my favourite too, all of my Curlew shots are of their tail feathers as they fly away!

The Green-winged Teals are one of my fave ducks. We have a male at one of our local parks and he hangs out with the Mallards, Boy, he sure is a small fella! He's become a minor celebrity there. #3 is tack-sharp in good light. I like the Curlew with the muddy bill, too. Good ones, David!

Nice pic and angle of the Curlew David. Not easy to get near these guys if my memory serves me right.
Those teals are real handsome and colorful.
Looks like you got real ol' winter weather over there

Thanks folks for your kind words of support, I'm grateful. The curlew was one of a large flock - all bar this one scarpered before I got within 200m of them. Maybe this one had no sense of smell
