Purple Sandpiper - Colwyn Bay
I purposely went in search of a bird a week or so ago. A bird I'd never seen before but had wanted to for some time. I made it my mission to find it on this particular day, and thanks to some really great directions from a fellow birder I managed to track it down in Colwyn Bay. The Purple Sandpiper is a pretty dumpy looking bird, but I found it to be a fascinating one as it wound it's way along the rocks on the coast looking for food. It was mixed in with a few Turnstone, which really made my day. Another lifer for me. Can this year get any better?
Undeterred by the waves breaking on the rocks behind.
