Curlew running through high grass, Isle of Islay

Picture of a Curlew running through high grassSpotted in the high grass next to the ‘back road’ from Portnahaven to Port Charlotte near Lossit Bay, a Curlew. It was running along the road, then crossed it in front of my (stopped) car, looked around and ran back. I’m told it might have been a distraction effort to lure me away from a nest.
