Curlews

These two critters were sitting beside the road somewhere on our daily walk. Usually we only hear their unearthly wails at night, they are not often seen during daylight.

Junior looked a bit out of sorts.

Mum, or dad, made it clear that I should not approach too closely, by giving me the death stare and hissing loudly.

I obliged and zoomed in.

Curlews sit with their lower legs hinged forward at the ‘knee’.

A strange sight.
