This is not another "Winter's Tale", it's from this summer, but it is a "cool" story. I have christened the shorebird shown below "Luke" because of its leucism.
I took over 70 photos of "Luke" between 9.40 am and 10.15 am, including a few movies. It seemed unconcerned by the nearby Kayakers or by me. I stood still for several minutes and it came quite close to me, as you can judged by the photographs.
