Caroline Gill's Wildlife Record:
Suffolk Horizons (and the World beyond her Window)
I could comment on every photo as they are all so great. The sheep with two lambs is sweet. Windmills are always a fascination. All of the photos were so great to see.
Hi Caroline, white Ruff males are known as satellites. They are the ones in a lek ( displaying group of males) that stand out and attract females flying over. They are less dominant at breeding than the dark 'ruffed' Ruffs but serve a special purpose regardless. Nice post, Stewart
That ruff is a star bird. Looks so unusual and striking
Thank you all so much for your comments. Fascinating to learn about the Ruff ... I only know about lekking from BBC Springwatch and had no idea that Ruffs had these displays.
