A flying visit

A flying visit by me to the RSPB reserve at Saltholme  in high summer yielded the following waders.

Lapwing (Vanellus vanellus)

And the afternoon’s delight, a prayer of Godwits in their summer finery.

Black-tailed Godwit (Limosa limosa)

Individually, their plumage is golden-red in the sunlight.

Summer’s heat is here.
