Midrips Stilts


Today's fight-back against the gloom is a picture taken of a pair of Black-winged Stilts present at The Midrips, East Sussex on Friday 2nd June 2017, relocated by Martin Casemore after they had flown from Rye Harbour earlier in the day. They were not present the following morning. Both birds settled down to allow close approach, delighting a small, but appreciative crowd.

I'd never heard of these birds. The picture, which is superb, seems to transmit a feeling of 'we shouldn't be here'.

Adam, they are an increasingly regular spring overshoot from the Mediterranean
