One and a half legged Curlew!

This Curlew which was missing the lower part of one of its leg was at the Bann Estuary at the weekend. But it was feeding successfully by flying (instead of running over the mud) and useing its wings to balance. Natures a wonderful thing but on the downside its definately out of the Northern Ireland Olympic Team but is makeing a strong case for inclusion in the Paralympic Squad!
