Greenshanks at St Clement, Truro

I took these shots this evening in stunning late sunshine. There were four adult Greenshanks plus a summer plumage Black-tailed Godwit, though this bird was too far for photography. The River Fal complex is particularly good for wintering and migrant Greenshanks, both in Spring and Autumn. These four won't be around for much longer as they will make their way north to Scandinavia to breed.

St Clement village at high tide. Coincidentally, this was the same spot where I photo'd Lesser Yellowlegs last Autumn.
