Waders are my favourite type of birds to photograph. I find them to be very photogenic. There are so many different types and each species has a variety of different plumage's. At Hoylake last weekend I came across hundreds possibly thousands of Dunlin busying themselves on the beach as the tide came in. Within them was one individual that was in almost full summer breeding plumage. Very unusual for January but very nice to see all the same.
Lovely little birds that gave me great joy watching them.
This individual with the rusty looking back is in breeding plumage.
You can see how much it differs to the much duller grey winter plumage,
Coming to land.

The shorebirds are cute! I love seeing the Dunlins and the Sanderlings. Great shots, thanks for joining on the the critter party. Happy weekend!ReplyDelete

Very nice photos! I especially love the next to last one with the reflection.ReplyDelete
so very cute!ReplyDelete
Living inland, I rarely see shorebirds. These are lovely birds, and really nice shots!ReplyDelete
Excellent shots of these beautiful birds! I don't usually see shorebirds where I walk.ReplyDelete
I agree with the wadder bird, unfortunately I have no shore nearby. Great photos.ReplyDelete
Perfection!!! Love especially the coming in for a landing, and the reflection along the shore.ReplyDelete
lol, the first image gave me the thought "one step forward" . I love them too but don´t see much of them as I live inland. And when thay are here they are so far away you hardly get a good shot of them. :(ReplyDelete
What a sweet little shore bird, wish we got them at our inland lake. I can imagine you were kneeling or laying down in the sand for your photos.ReplyDelete
Awesme serie, great both photowork and edit!ReplyDelete
