    Good shooting, LP. Looks like #1 was very close to you. #3 (great light!) and #5 (with the reflection) are my faves, but #4 is pretty cool too cuz you can see its funny yellow feet.

    Great series. These are all interesting birds. I love the shadow around your photos. Really adds class.

    #3 is a curlew. The beak is more decurved than a whimbrels

    #1 and #2 is a female Turnstone, I think. Puzzled about the lack of a prominent bar over the eye.

    Do they have snowys' in the UK? I'm thinking Little Egret, though they are rare.

    Very cool. I like them all. Wish I could get results like yours, but I have enough trouble with things that don't move!
