Bird of the Week: 3rd June - seeing double

Hi gang, apologies for another late challenge!

Last week's was brilliant - this week let's see twice the birds - so post shots with either two birds in it or a male and female of a species in 2 shots (make sense)?

My two girls with their egrets - a bit of fun for you as photo is a bit blurred.

It's the funniest thing out to watch the birds run to keep up with the ponies if they move at a fast walk. (Ah ha! Found one to show you with the birds running)

Even better if the ponies go for a trot - the birds fly along with themwink

Photos taken through the study window - if the birds catch sight of us they fly off so can generally only have long distance photos of them.

A couple of urban-dwelling Bush Stone Curlews. After a spectacularly unsuccessful attempt at nesting in the carpark of my office building, they have taken up residence in a nearby deserted carpark.
