Spoonbills


Took me over 2 hours to get this pic but well worth the wait. They had been spotted early in the day and many people had arrived to get a look at them. After a while people started to give up thinking they had moved on. There was two of us left when from behind some trees they took flight and circled once before landing again behind the trees. It's the first time I have seen a Spoonbill so really pleased.
