Avocet chick 25.5.2012 (1)

We were walking on the windswept marshes at the mouth of the River Alde when we spotted these youngsters feeding in a shallow pool.

 

The wind was so strong that it blew both me and the camera but I just had to have a go even if they were too far off for my 100 x 400 lens.

 

Add to that they appear covered in cotton wool giving them that fluffy appearance but I hope you can share what we saw on that sunny but windswept march.
