Mating Avocets

I managed to capture this pair of mating Avocets a few days ago. It was a pretty brief experience for them both, much to the relief of the female no doubt. The Avocet became extinct in Great Britain in 1840. Its successful recolonisation at Minsmere, Suffolk, in 1947 led to its adoption as the logo of the Royal
Society for the Protection of Birds.
