Venus Pool - Common Sandpiper

A Common Sandpiper has been present for the past couple of days but usually very distant down by the relocated Sand Martin box (presumably as there's some mud there?) Today was my lucky day as it came within range for some decent images despite the dull conditions.

A quick flight across the pool and here it comes...


Initially appearing a bit wary...




But then, best foot forward, searching for small insects...








Just one brief moment in the open, free from clutter!


But it didn't last long!


A little light relief from Osprey vigil, at least two reported over Shropshire airspace today but no joy here...
