Leucistic Curlew - Druridge Pools (Northumberland) (1 Viewer)

I had a brief trip to Druridge Pools after work this evening and seeing a group of birds in the distance I expected these to be Whimbrel, however although they were at the limits of my binoculars and my camera lens I think they actually curlew. One however stood out as being almost white.

I presume this is a leucistic curlew?

A pathetic and cheap remark from someone who obviously wasn't there.

Only said in jest! Looking at the evidence I personally think it probably was a SBC, though "not proven" was probably the right decision. Anyway its been done to death countless times before, lets not do so again. :t:

Sorry about that, I get a bit touchy about all the knockers who weren't there.
