Stone Curlew fill-up!

On the way to Welney yesterday, Brian and I looked in at a traditional pre-dispersal gathering site for Stone Curlews. We had visited the fields a couple of weeks ago and seen nothing, so we weren't over-optimistic. In the event we quickly located 80+ of these amazingly prehistoric-looking birds spread widely over the stubble. After a bit of traffic avoidance and stealthy hedgerow stalking we obtained some decent pictures, often as the birds flew or walked towards us.
