Redshank wading on shoreline

Along the New Forest National Park’s coastline, one of the commonest small wading birds you will find is the Redshank. With it’s red legs and orange beak tipped with black, it’s quite easy to identify. This individual was exploring the shoreline near Keyhaven marina and these birds are a common site across the North Solent marshes between Milford on Sea and Lepe near the mouth of Southampton Water.
