Hello Jose
Beautiful photo! Very good composition, nice lighting and very good sharpness!
Merry Christmas to you and your family too!

Hello Jose.
Excellent sharpness and details. Very nice White.
A month ago i went to O Grove (Pontevedra - Spain) and I saw many examples of Calidris alpina, C. alba and others. In Portugal by what I see there are good sites for wintering these waders. What areas do you recommend?
Thank you.
