It's that time once again, when the Purple Sandpipers have returned to their wintering grounds in Norfolk. I look forward to putting my head over the wall at Sheringham early in the morning and looking down onto the rocks to find these lovely little birds. I was lucky enough to do this at the weekend whilst visiting my parents.
The sun had barely come up, and the light was poor, but there were 3 of the little beauties all snuggled up on the rocks.
I wandered off to look at some Turnstones and when I came back they were on the move.
Fabilous photos, a bird I do not know. Well done DianeReplyDelete
Lovely photos Adam. We don't get too many in flat Fylde.ReplyDelete
Beautiful pictures of a Purple Sandpiper, thanks.ReplyDelete
Hello Adam! Great photos of Purple sandpiper! Purple sandpiper breeding population in Finland is only 5 - 30 pairs. The best time to see them is migration time.ReplyDelete
Awe...such cute little birds. Had never seen one and now through your photos makes me want to cuddle one. :) Thanks for sharing with Pictorial Tuesday.ReplyDelete

Wonderful pictures - having just arrived in the UK from Bangkok, I wish I could pull my head in like that, it's a little nippy here!ReplyDelete

A beautiful shorebird we seldom see here. The most I have ever seen was a flock of about twenty in Wales.ReplyDelete
...lovely little things that are new to me.ReplyDelete
Cute little guy!ReplyDelete
