Photographer's Note

We are now Sunday afternoon and after the grey sky, the fog is now setting. This is probably the reason of the visit of this bird, identified as a curlew, supposedly "numenius arquata" ("courlis cendr" in French), but if I am wrong, I am sure someone will correct it. The curlew is not a sea bird, its usual territories being prairies and marches, and its beak is well adapted to catch worms in wet grounds. This is why I believe the bird got lost when the fog began to fell down around us. It was obviousliy tired and thus not very shy. We noticed it when it landed on the navigation deckhouse (you will see tow other views in workshop) and it stayed with us for several hours, till the fog lifted.

A very nice Sunday to all.
