It's always fun to watch them, isn't it?
This is my favourite bird to watch on Haydn's Pool John.. I have loads of pics and video clips. Your images are wonderful to see.
Great pics have them in Poole Park at the moment... :)
HI John...I like that one to ...I like seeing birds doing there thing..I like the eye in the second one..that little head tilt is cute!!Nice ones..Grace
Love that last one! What a catch on your part!
These are awesome shots of the Black-tailed Godwit John! That second shot with the bird looking right at you is super! Then he was comfortable enough to take a scratch too ;-)
These are awesome birds to see, great photos.
Lovely shots I was just wondering if this godwit feels the same frustration that we would if we tried to scratch with our foot! I presume NO!
Hi joo,Thanks for the visit! It amazes me how non-plussed they are at Titchwell, obviously used to people!J
Thanks Andrew,They are very photogenic birds aren`t they? I tend to go a bit mad in the breeding season and take loads of photos of them!J
Thanks Lisa, they are lovely birds, so elegant!J
Hi Grace, Thank you. I suppose I got lucky when he started to have a scratch as I had just pressed the shutter at that moment!J
Hi Susan,Thank you, as I say, I just got lucky I suppose!J
Hi Larry,Thank you, too kind. He must have had an itch! ;)J
Hi Eileen,Thank you, too kind!J
Hi cuby poet,Thank you. I suppose they are used to it, mind you, they don`t really have hands to scratch with, do they ;)J
It certainly was obliging. Lovely photos, John and you had some nice light there .
Great shots John.I went there yesterday; probably got shots of the same bird lol
Dear John, I love to see birds scratch their head - so funny. I learned in biology that it can be a "displacement activity" - but more often, I think, it just might be an itch. I admire your patience: to get such beautiful photographs you have to be really, really good! Thank you.
Hi Jan,Thank you, he didn`t seem to mind me a bit! ;)J
Hi Keith,Thank you. Look forward to seeing them!J
Hi Britta,I think you are right, they just have a need to scratch an itch!Thank you, I don`t know about patience, sometimes I am just lucky!J
You can put up as many of these photos as you want - great stuff!
Great series of captures!
