(Anthus rubescens) As this weekend was the last public access of the year, I decided to visit this bird once more to see if the light was any better; as it turned out it wasn't. I came home damp but smiling as I had been lying down on the floor, with the water lapping at my sides, to get a better angle. At one point the bird came within 3 ft of my camera and I lay as still as possible! A very enjoyable day but I shouldn't have commando crawled whilst clutching my camera as that did me more harm than good! Thanks for viewing.
