This is a bird that I don’t see that often let alone photograph. They are relatively small (between robin-blackbird) and can be seen running backwards and forwards with the swash and quickly burring their beak into the sand in the hope of catching a quick meal.
Their size makes them a challenge to photograph as you need to be quite close even with super telephoto lens. They also run at a good speed so action shots are very tricky to get perfect.
This one was on its own during a grey day at Godrevy.
