My photos are barely record shots, but at least we saw a Stone Curlew in this distance. If you click on this link, you may begin to realise how camouflaged they can be when lying low
In fact we saw two, but the other kept popping its head below its dusty parapet as I positioned my camera!

- Tip: the hides are pretty close to the car park.

I always find the name "curlew" rather odd for this bird, which I've never seen, of course, when it has virtually no resemblance physically to a curlew at all. Unless it has a similar call.
And yes, its call is indeed the reason for its name.
What an exciting time, I'm rather envious - lovely to see your images
Lovely to see, it's a bird I've never seen yet. I love their large yellow eyes
Congratulations - you must be over the moon to see this lovely species. I've never seen one so feeling a tad green! :)
It's great you managed to see one, even if you are not quite happy with the photo.
