Waders Galore

I will be the first person to admit that I have a small obsession with waders. Whenever I get the opportunity to, I will visit the south coast, in particular a small stretch of shingle beach in Hampshire.

Their quirky and often inquisitive personalities are amusing to say the least. Watching them as they go about their daily business gives me great pleasure, and trying to accurately portray this behaviour in a single photograph gives me a great sense of amazement.

These photos were taken on one beach in Hampshire:

Sanderling (Calidris alba)
Turnstone (Arenaria interpres)

These two images were taken at Emsworth:

Spotted Redshank (Tringa erythropus)
Black-tailed Godwit (Limosa limosa)
And these three images of Purple Sandpipers were all taken at Southsea: 

And on the subject of Purple Sandpipers, I couldn't possibly leave out this image (also in my North Norfolk blog post) taken in the car park at Salthouse in Norfolk:
