[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Common Redshank or Redshank (Tringa totanus) is a wader in the large family Scolopacidae, the typical waders. It is closest to the small Wood Sandpiper, and also closely related to the Marsh Sandpiper (Pereira & Baker, 2005). These are a group of smallish shanks which tend to have red or reddish legs, and in breeding plumage are generally a subdued, light brown above with some darker mottling, with a pattern of somewhat diffuse small brownish spots on the breast and neck.

This is a widespread breeding bird across Europe and northern Asia. It is a migratory species, wintering on coasts around the Mediterranean, in south Asia, and on the Atlantic coast of Europe from Great Britain southwards.

Hello Stefan. the redshank has great colour and fine detail. his orange legs and beak stand out against the blue sky.well done


This is a nice sot with that big lens. The sharpness is great. The composition feels just a little tight on the top. With such a clear sky it would be easy to add to it with cloning.
