Plumage Lessons from a Curlew
Sunday, 18 October I was at the Hayle RSPB Reserve in Cornwall (UK). A Curlew Numenius arquata was being most obliging in offering photo opportunities - just a pity the quality of light wasn't that great.
At one stage, it started preening and stretching wings presenting a great lesson in wing and tail plumage.
