All great pictures but I'm particularly impressed with the close-up headshots, especially the raptors. :yes:

Found a dead wading bird.Took it home, parcelled it up, and sent it off to the rubber-faced irritant Phil Cool with a note inside which read: “Is this your Sanderling?”

I'm fond of greater flamingos (Phoenicopterus roseus). Their colonies is a thing of beauty!
