The other day we were down at Blackadder Lake in Vivash. We had gone to photograph Sacred Kingfishers, but the only glimpse we got of them was as we got out of the car. When we got to the lake we became entranced by the antics of a pair of juvenile pied stilts. They moved across the lake shallows in perfect synchronised formation, until the need for a tasty morsel became too much.
