Dive Bomber

This Black Tailed Godwit had the hump with me.





Must have been far to close to its nest.

Re: Dive Bomber

Great shots Andy, I'm envious. Was this taken in Holland? The Godwits we usually see in the UK are the "Icelandica" sub species which breed in Iceland and winter here. Your bird looks like the slightly paler coloured longer billed " Limosa Limosa" which breed in parts of Northern Europe and winter in Southern Europe and North Africa. Of course I may be talking through my hat. Great shots anyway, thanks for sharing.

Regards

Re: Dive Bomber

Terrific in-flight shot Andy. I suspect you are correct in that it was in defensive mode. In any other case, this bird would be anywhere you were not.

Re: Dive Bomber

Thanks for the confirmation Andy. Now Big Brother can check where you are from the birds you photograph, scary.
