If on a winter's night a Redshank....

If, on a winter's night, a Redshank lands at your feet you might think, as the sun sets lower in the sky and the distance it's light has to travel through the earth's atmosphere increases thus allowing the blue light to be filtered from it leaving a reddish-yellow glow on everything, that a Redshank starts to look even more awesome than usual.


If on a winter's night a Redshank lands at your feet you might think it's legs look velociraptor-ish.


If on a winter's night a Redshank lands at your feet you might get to watch its shadow lengthen as the sun sets and think of all the Redshanks you ever watched and the order that you watched them.


If on a winter's night a Redshank lands at your feet you might get to watch it feed in a rockpool and realise that everything's going to be OK.


If on a winter's night a Redshank lands at your feet you might just want to stop everything forever and watch it carefully preen.


If on a winter's night a Redshank lands at your feet you might see it stretch wings that have carried it far away and back again and want to follow it.


If on a winter's night a Redshank lands at your feet watching it run around the sandstone reefs might be the best thing you've ever seen.


If on a winter's night a Redshank...
