Avocets - part 2
 

Back to my trip to Norfolk......
 

As well as photographing Avocets feeding, I was able to capture some other behaviour too. I photographed this individual bird preening in front of the Parrinder Hide. As the sun came down, the water took on a lovely pink / blue colour.

I was fortunate to capture the bird when it shook its feathers too.

But some of my favourite images were taken from the Island Hide.

Where I was able to capture this pair of Avocets mating in the early evening light.
