April 2014 Ruff migrating through
I felt really lucky to get quite close to a Ruff at Slimbridge Gloucestershire as it was migrating through to its northerly breeding site. Moulting into breeding plumage it adopted this Redshank as an extra pair of eyes, and seem to follow it everywhere. It's amazing what partnerships can be temporarily formed when there is a mutual benefit.
