Artist's Description

Avocet belogn to the wading bird family and are approx 15 to 18 inches long. Breeds in shallow brackish lagoons and also near estuaries.

This one was captured in Norfolk coast and had a nest nearby. I was some considerable distant away in order not to disturb the animal and possibly leave the nest.

She was quite happy and not disturbed at my presence crouching between some high grasses.

My body or rather walking language was always n of passing or moving away rather than towards or predatory.

She was quite comfortable with my presence and returning to her eggs, until…… some Neanderthal had to drag a fishing tackle trolley just a few feet away from the nest, although I tried to warn him of teh nesting birds location.
