I Checked out the field again, where I took yesterdays photos of the Stone Curlews, and just as I approached it a flock of 8 got Stone curlews too flight, calling out as they went. I counted another 5 that didn’t  fly off, and they were even closer to the road than yesterday and seemed pretty relaxed with my presence.. So I got a little closer,  tucked in behind a stone wall (a common sight on Fuerteventura’s landscape)  again and took these photos. All photos taken on Canon EOS 40D wth a 400mm Zoom lens, zoomed in all the way. I should buy myself an extender one of these days…

I have uploaded a few more photos into the Fuerteventura Wildlife Gallery, from where you can view the images as a slideshow.
