Storspov - Numenius arquata - Eurasian Curlew
NF Photo 120625, Skottland - Scotland, Lammermuir Hills

I am used to find Curlews at teh beaches. But this one lived in the low mountains in Scotland. It seemed to have a nest to protect. It did not really like us to be in the area.

  13. ps...

    Just wanted you to know that I added a linky to my newest bird photos today. If you'd care to stop by and leave a link. And perhaps if you know of anyone who loves birding--let them know of the new birding meme I set up for a weekly run---The Bird D'Pot. Stop by if you can. And have a glorious week.

    I'd Rather B Birdin'
