A Common Sandpiper

Sighted this Common Sandpiper on the Ibsley Water shoreline outside the Lapwing Hide at Blashford Lakes nature reserve. Managed to get a couple of reasonably decent record shots even though the weather was once again dull and grey ((ISO 800-5000 used). The one positive is at least the Sandpiper was closer than normal, with the shoreline being a lot higher up the bank on account of the heavy rainfall over the recent months.

I also recorded a short video.

The pics are 1st and then the Youtube video.
