3 Black-Winged Stilt

Woman's Weekly (UK) - - Nature -

This is a beau­ti­ful, del­i­cate lit­tle wad­ing bird with ex­tremely long bub­blegum-pink legs, a white body and black wings. As cli­mate change threat­ens to dry out the marshes of South­ern Europe, birds like stilts will have to move north­wards to find some­where to live. In 2017, six pairs nested in the UK, rais­ing a to­tal of 13 chicks. Will they re­turn this year? Let’s hope so!
