  3. Superb set of images, best shot I have seen of the American Golden Plover but I really like the face off between the Barwits.

  4. I'm sorry to see that the Purple Heron wasn't cooperating, John, but you absolutely nailed it with that second AGP image - wonderful! However, I'm going to pick two particular favourites - the image with the two Barwits because of its perfection and the action it captures, and the image with the Blackwit looking on with disdain at the two Redshank (again, perfection!). The others are not very far behind, however - all are superb.

    My best wishes to you and Sue - - - Richard

  11. Great images John, good to catch up at Sennen, shame the Raptors spooked the AGP and Ruffs, just as I was about to grab a few shots.
    CU SOON.
