Lapwings and Water rail: mirror, shine and attitudes

Vanellus vanellus –

3 Northern lapwings landed about 60 m from the hide, the distance was a pity but the show was great!

3 Vanneaux huppés se sont posés peu avant que le râle n’apparaisse, à environ 60 mètres de nous: même avec le 500 mm c’était juste en distance.

 

 

Rallus aquaticus – This appeared all of a sudden behind the lapwings… the distance was quite frustrating! But it was amusing to see it walk fast between them before crossing the water to our bank.

Hélas la proximité toujours le problème, ce râle est sorti derrière les vanneaux mais c’était amusant de le voir passer au milieu d’eux et traverser le petit bras d’eau pour rejoindre la rive où nous nous trouvions, mais nous ne l’avons pas revu.

Les reflets dans l’eau font toute l’image mais hélas il est toujours trop loin!
The colorful reflexions enhance this image, the bird unfortunately never came closer:

Dernier coup d’œil aux vanneaux qui font leur toilette l’un après l’autre…
Back to the 3 lapwings busy bathing and preening…
