Titchwell in September - Turnstone
 

By far the most confiding bird on Titchwell beach was the Turnstone. It is also one of the most camouflaged birds amongst the rocks - so much so that I didn't realise quite how close some of the birds were until I was almost right on top of them. I also managed to get photos of other birds with Turnstones also in the frame, without realising they were there until I got home.
 

They are perfectly coloured to match their surroundings.

Some birds were so close it was hard to keep them within the frame.

It was quite tricky to get a "clean" image of these birds - one where the bird stands clearly against the background. I was quite pleased with this one.
