Like this one with the difference in size between the Redshank and the Oystercatcher
The tide was pushing the birds nearer for me to catch more easily.:-)
The Egret was a way away though!
Well will leave it there for a while as my dinner needs checking - it's easy to forget to take the onions off the hob when you get stuck into putting up photos I find!!!!!!
Lot to learn
Great set Gaynor of photos and lovely to see all the waders with curlew, oycs, reshank, L.egret, etc., It takes me back seeing Red Wharf Bay which I visited with my family on a weeks holiday in a cottage when I was just 7 years old My brothers and father used to walk round to Moulfre Bay, peg a fishing line out with silver foil drops and catch Mackerel for dinner ! We had no money for fancy fishing rods, they were more like bamboo cane those days but we did go out on a small wooden rowing boat and dangle a line over the side - and none of us could swim !
Hope you saved your bacon onions lol

Thanks Hazy, nothing wrong with bamboo canes for fishing rods, I'm sure my husband had the same when he fished years ago, and he also loved fishing from the boat and couldn't swim. I remember he always said what was the point in swimming as the cold would kill him first!!!
Yes saved my onions - just - and have finished the dinner now, pork, apple in casserole with the onions, lovely.
Will put up a few more now, blimey it takes a fair time with having to alter the dimensions each time, I can change size en bloc on the windows live gallery, but putting it on here seems not to work without as I say changing each photo for the forum.
You can see the tide has filled the bay now, some nice reflections too.
Smart isn't he
Quite pleased with those two shots of the B/Headed Gull
Even Mr Crow has been pushed up onto the grass now, he had been among the waders before .
Last of all here come the Pests
Didn't stay long thank goodness!!
O'h and one more, what are these please
Could they be Wigeon I wonder, not a good pic I'm afraid.
That's about it,
