curlew and sunken boatIt's always a pleasure and privilege to go out bird watching with my friend David Chandler who is the author or co-author of more than 10 bird books. On this occasion we were at Titchwell RSPB bird reserve on the north Norfolk coast in the UK.

I'm by no means an expert but among the birds - native and visiting - were the following:
Curlew, Teal, Golden Plover, Lapwing, Redshank, Brent Goose, Shoveller, gulls of various kinds, Pintail, Ringed Plover, Black tailed Godwit, Little Egret. Also we saw a bird opening just the tip of its long bill. Pretty neat, but I forget what David said its name was. 

Here is a short video shot at this location:
