Winter Waders - Redshank
Next up in line for this mini series is the Redshank. I realised the other day that I had not got any shots of these birds in flight and as the light was good decided to give it go.
This bird was battling to stay on the rock against a strong wind. Photographing pair of birds is always tricky at close range as you need a lot of depth of field to get both birds in sharp focus. This shot was taken at F14.

Love the pictures of the Red Shank. I got to see one when I was in Brooklyn, NY many years ago. It was a cold snowy day. I didn't get any pictures but in my minds eye I can still see it standing amongst some Yellowlegs.
