More of the last waders

Sanderling

Dunlin

Only a few Knot mixed in the roost

Turnstone on the change of plummage

Apart from resting the sand-blasting meant keeping ones eyes closed

The heavy seas began to bring ashore large numbers of jellyfish 
and as the tide turned these were left stranded and appeared to be a welcome snack

It is easy to lose the sense of scale of these small birds

Cheers Martin, it was 'a bit difficult' and pleased I managed some flight shots in focus... lots of images of heavy seas and out of focus subject! Breeding plummage is nice to see... mind you I do like Sanderling in winter plummage.
Best

Geoff. Despite all the elements could throw at you plus the dog walkers Rossall came up trumps and you have got some great wader shots.

I find these wader roosts great places to have fun with the camera,always something going on...Excellent results Geoff..keep up the good work.
