Venus Pool - Common Sandpiper

One or two waders are starting to drop in with the lower water levels and this Common Sandpiper didn't last long! It was a good encounter whilst it lasted!

Wide awake and hungry!


Plenty of tasty morsels in the shallows and mud!






A tempting feast on the grassy bank?


Identity crisis? Sandpipers are resourceful and despite the sting in the tail.....


this bee went down a treat!


And bits came up again in the form of a pellet :-)


A quick snooze and then onwards North.....


The Med Gull was still in and out plus a Little Ringed Plover. Oh and a Redshank was also present in the shallows!
