Bird watching on a February morning

Today the weather was perfect: sunny, no wind and warm. Snowdrops, crocuses and the first daffodils are out. I went for a walk to the riverbank and saw several birds that appeared to be posing specially for a photo.

These first birds were in the trees and bushes.

Then at the waterside were curlews, gulls, turnstones and other water birds. The water itself was like a mill pond, so still with brilliant reflections.

I need to learn what the different birds are especially ones by the water. If you know what these are do tell me.

It was indeed a beautiful day for birdwatching.
