Curlew in silhouette

Although a heavily cropped shot from distance feel this shows this fantastic bird to good effect. Compared with Whimbrel, for which it could be mistaken, the bill is a fair bit longer in proportion to head size. The Clevedon - Portishead coastline is a particularly good area to see this bird. On this day four birds were working their way down (up?) to Battery Point in Portishead. Up to 150 birds have been recorded at Clevedon in recent weeks.
