    Barra Airport is wonderful. Planes land on the beach when the tide is out and the sea is a terrific shade of turquoise. I don’t usually photograph wildlife but while waiting for to photograph an incoming flight this Oystercatcher was nice enough to pose for me. Ken

    Lovely catch, Ken. There’s a darkish smudge above the bird, which is visible on the full shot but really stands out on the thumbnail. Fixable?

    Easily fixed Jeremy. It is a seaweed covered rock. I have also lightened the very top of the image. Ken

    Well worth the (pretty minimal) effort.
