Numenius arquata

Numenius arquata better known as  the Curlew.

The largest European wading bird, recognisable on estuaries or moors by its long down curved bill, brown upper parts, long legs and call . The Curlew here is seen from the van window as I am sure he would have flown if I had opened the door. Spotted on the shore on The Menai Straits North Wales.
