SUPERB summer plumage Knot

A text message informing me of a summer plumage Knot on Black Hole Marsh was a pleasant surprise this morning; I've never seen a sum plum example before. I popped down to have a look this evening and soon located it. It was pretty distant and hard to see from the hides, but I thought I'd wait out the heavy downpour in case it made the bird flighty, as I've seen previously with waders on Black Hole Marsh. It did become flighty. And it flew towards me and landed in front of Island Hide for a few brief moments...

Both taken at ISO 3200 due to the low light (heavy rain). Terrible conditions for photography, but stunning example of a Knot none-the-less; certainly the smartest looking one I've ever seen!
