Wader wonderland

Almost forgot about these, languishing in a dusty corner of the hard drive labelled 'January'. Some cracking waders from around Poole Harbour last month.
This summer plumaged Bar-tailed Godwit was at Shore Road - the same bird I photographed this time last year
It has spent many winters now returning to this site, standing out among its more conventionally plumaged brethren
Bar-tailed Godwits, Shore Road
Compare to the more plain-backed Black-tailed Godwit 
This bird was feeding alone and at close range in Poole Park
