Curlew - Guarding the nest

Last night while walking back to the car I spied a medium sized bird

hiding in the shadows next to the fence. This morning it was still there

and so was it's mate, so I managed to get a few photos of them.

Presumably they're a breeding pair and nesting somewhere nearby.

See where this picture was taken.
