The Common Red Shank ( Tringa totanus ), 27 - 29 cm

This is the season for winter visitors and waders are no exception. One of these waders is the Common Red Shank. This specie could be seen together with other waders in coastal wetlands, lowland marshes and large rivers. The distinctive feature that has given this fine bird it's name are a pair of bight red legs, hence 'Red' Shank.

Here are a few photos for sharing.
