This particular group were huddled on a pontoon at New Brighton, on the Wirral. The tide was in and the beach covered. It was time for a little R&R.
They do have two legs. They were all just choosing to use one.
In the background here with a Laughing Gull, (Front) and Turnstones (many).
Turnstones, to the right, are slightly bigger.
Those Purple Sandpipers are very neat and interesting birds. I love the united one-legged stance!ReplyDelete
