Avocet at the Dams


One of those birds that, as it expands its range northwards and increases in numbers, is still a treat to see here in the Filey area, with only a handful of records every year (nice one George). It's also easy to forget what absolute beauties they are, even in crappy light - there are surely few more elegant or attractive waders to watch at close quarters, and this one performed beautifully a couple of days ago at the Dams.
