For some reason every year about this time a couple of old friends get together on Blackie Spit in Surrey to hang out. A Long-billed Curlew usually comes first and is followed later by a Marbled Godwit.
This year was no different. I got some distant shots of the curlew a few weeks ago but was hoping to get it in a better location. Getting up early this morning paid off as not one but both of them were back.
I was able to get some decent shots in the early morning before too many people were out and about.
