Although they may be very common they are querky birds and quite attractive when seen at close quarters.
Late morning and the weather improved so took a trip to Breech Pool to look for waders. As I arrived I could see the familiar figure of Dave Potter hunched over his '500' and not so far away a Green Sandpiper posing for him. As usual, I didn't have my camera so decided to return home, grab the camera and within 20 minutes returned to the spot...sandpiper gone! (It was alleged that I spooked it as I made off ) However the bird did return for a short while and I was able to get a few very quick shots before it flew off again and then remained out of distance for the next couple of hours.
Here are my efforts...I just hope Dave enjoyed the quality time prior to my arrival and got some cracking piccys!
