IT Is often that you see a raptor impersonating a wader, but so it was at Cleethorpes at the weekend.

A sparrowhawk was sampling life as  a redshank -albeit unsuccessfully because of the length of its tail which dragged in the water.

The exercise took place in a large area of standing water  on the Pleasure Island overspill car park

Later the same bird feigned being a duck before deciding to settle on having a good bath.

Part of its strange antics were watched in fascination by a couple of carrion crows.

Life as wader . . .

Or as a duck . . . 
Or it just wanted a good bath!

Whatever- the episode soon started to attract an audience of intrigued carrion crows
