Seven whistlers

An evening walk around the railway pit,looks like the Hobbies will be nesting in the same tree as last year,two birds have been sat in the tree for a few days now.....hopefully il get some good shots over the summer,just a record of them sat in the tree for now though.Suprise of the day went to the three Whimbrel-very wary indeed,the call is very disticntive i find,and i always think of the Shetland/Norse name 'seven whistler' if i recall it has quite a dark connotation,six birds calling for the seventh,if the find it the seventh brings death.................or something like that !!!! Alright im probably wrong !!
