SPOON­BILL

Bird Watching (UK) - - Part­ing Shot -

This magic-look­ing bird was a dream for many of us grow­ing up, end­lessly flick­ing through bird books. But it was a dream that was largely out of reach, as the stately Spoon­bill was a pretty scarce pas­sage vis­i­tor. These days, things have changed, rad­i­cally. Spoon­bills are back breed­ing in Nor­folk, and flocks 20-strong can be seen at sev­eral sites. The only prob­lem is that now, birdwatchers re­alise that Spoon­bills spend a lot of time asleep. When feed­ing, or seen as well as this bird, though, they are out­stand­ing!
