A fantastically behaved Common Sandpiper has now been on one of my local ponds for about a week. I finally managed some quality time with it at lunchtime today. A bit rushed, but nonetheless I'm quite pleased. Background was challenging to say the least, but I think I managed to avoid all the litter. Monopod used as normal, makes things ever so much quicker - I must do a post on monopods at some point, they are vastly underrated in my opinion.
