Came across the word Ineffable, the other day. Here in The Online Photographer —Just shows the company I keep.
And in keeping with that, we had an evening down on the T Section Ponds in the wonderful gold evening light.
Large Band of Brothers, (Banded Stilts) were there, and I’ve already shared those moments.
But as I was settling in with the Stilts, some more arrivals winged their way in.
They have been in the area for quite a few months, but always, always on the other side of the ponds, and I’ve not had much more than a record shot for the time. These are in lovely breeding plumage, and if I read the story right, are either off to the far-flung reaches of Siberia, or somewhere into Europe.
I was laying in the grass on the water’s edge, off a small mudflat peninsula, and the birds hunted right round the peninsula and then settled in for a preen and a bit of a loaf before setting off to the other end of the pond for their evening feed.
