Cresswell Long-billed Dowitcher

My fourth view of this bird but first time i pointed the camera in its direction. The results are very average but it was on the sand bar to the right hand side of the hide by far the closest that i had seen it. I see this as merely a record shot of the sighting.

Here are a couple of slightly better images.
Bittern, Gosforth Park.

Waxwing. Woodhorn Motors, Ashington.


  1. Blimey that Waxwing looks close John!

  2. They're quite confiding birds on occasions Warren. It was about 3 metres away.
