[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Whimbrel is a bird migrates. It breeds in northern Europe and winters in southern Spain and Africa. For our area in April and May passed northbound between July and September and southbound. When migration is seen in coastal areas, estuaries and marshes in the intertidal zone, feeding on crustaceans (such as the copy of the photograph), annelids, mollusks and even fish.
In their breeding, feeding on insects (larvae and adults), spiders, millipedes, earthworms, slugs and even matriales vegetables.
The specimen photographed in a short time has caught enough crabs, which are swallowed whole without problems.
I used the nikkor 3.5 ais + tc 14 b, which work very well.
