One of my favourite birds, the stone curlew, they hardly move😁


Check out the angle of those legs.

Here in the U.K. stone curlews have become pretty rare, they look almost identical to me but I suppose they are a different variety to your antipodean specimen. Anyhow, an interesting pose and very well captured.

Shouldn't that be flock?

No, herd is correct I believe.

Except of course that they are not really curlews but 'Thick-Knees'.

Used to be known as 'Goggle-Eyed Plovers' amongst the 'old boys' in Suffolk, IIRC.
