Beach Waders

January 20, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

As well as all the Gulls and Terns, a few Waders were partaking in the fish feast. A welcome relief from larid action, so they got a bit of the treatment. I'm particularly pleased with the Redshank - a nervous bird that preferred to run past me, but with such great light you had the speed to capture a flavour of the movement. The others are Kentish Plover, Greater Sandplover, and of course Whimbrel. As usual the tactic was to lie flat on the beach and get mucky - I think my camera still has sand in it, but that's what the pro-bodies are built for in my opinion. Abuse, and lots of it!
