Black & White & Red All Over.

The answer to this little puzzle used to be a newspaper but in this case it describes an Avocet that is currently resting and feeding on a large stretch of floodwater lying between the A420 and the minor road running from Fernham to Watchfield the bird seems quite lively but has an obvious wing injury that has bled leaving a patch of stained feather and a drooping wing. Possible explainations are it may have hit something like a pylon or it has been shot , this is mere speculation of course. My thanks to Dr Bill Haynes for bringing this bird to my attention.
