Patience is key, and not frightening the birds is of utmost importance. If you stay still and low and don't look intimidating, you will gain their trust and everyone is happy. The birds can go about their business and I can (hopefully) get some got shots as they do it.
One of the many Ringed Plovers along the Wirral coast.
A Turnstone doing what Turnstones do. Brilliantly camouflaged at the same time.
I know how difficult it is to get a good photo of ANY bird in flight. Your work here, is perfection.ReplyDelete

Well, you did get some beautiful shots of both the Ringed Plover, and Turnstone.ReplyDelete
I never get tired of watching waders either.ReplyDelete
Your Ringed Plover is very similar to the Killdeer Plover we have here in the United States.
Yes patience is important if you are really going to soak in all nature has to offer...MichelleReplyDelete
What a lovely little face--so worth the wait. There's so much to see when you sit at the seaside, I never want to leave, sometimes.ReplyDelete
I hope this finds you and yours doing well. May we display your header on our new site directory? As it is now, the site title (linked back to its home page) is listed, and we think displaying the header will attract more attention. In any event, we hope you will come by and see what is going on at SiteHoundSniffs.com.ReplyDelete
