Whimbrel

The Curlew is a wader I am familiar with they are  found in wild habitats around the UK. In April and May numbers of their smaller cousin, Whimbrel, will be moving through the UK towards their northerly breeding sites. I was watching this Curlew this morning when I noticed what I believed to be a Whimbrel in the same shot. Far on the other side of this coastal pond  at Penmon Anglesey so at maximum distance but I am happy with these distance picture. The Whimbrel is a 1st for me.(only taken nearly 60 years!)
