CommentI had intended submitting this for competition but have decided I am probably not ready for that level. It was an enjoyable time spent with a variety of waders feeding as tide receded in early morning. I was excited to have caught this bird flinging its breakfast as they do to remove the legs and especially the "defence-come-display" claw. I have seen birds with this claw clamped on and they appear to be very difficult to remove.
