An unusual sunshine holiday in Tenerife for a week away from work, not my usual thing as turn bright pink in an instant and didn't go to a birdy location or a tourist hotspot....but took a cam along in case I escaped for a wander :)
Whimbrel, i'm informed from a previous post, having never really seen one, thought i'd glimpsed one in Mull a couple of years back but no pics to look and check....This bird feeding alone without a care in the world..enjoying the warm sunshine - Mike

An outstanding record shot of this Whimbrel Miki and a beautiful almost monochrome image guy.
