I was amused to see this little fellow pretending to be a bit of dead tree branch... See the branch on the left - and the bird facing right
Anyone else got any shots of birds trying to look like something else?
Ooops - something went wrong there...
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Actually, I think it's a warbler of some sort. About the size of a robin. Coastal area - by a river estuary.
Here is another pic which may clarify (or not!)

Cracking story, Nigel
I also find that you hear twittering, and the moment you get closer, it all stops - and doesn't start again until you walk out of sight. The little blighters just elude me! That's why I like waders so much - they move slowly (in general) and don't have trees to hide in..
