Hi Trekkers,

Although Sanderling (Calidris alba) is a common winter visitor in Ireland, our rendez-vous today was the first one with this species. The birds ran very fast at the tidal edge zone while they ate their "seafood lunch" (crabs, worms etc.). For further species info please click Birdwatch Ireland website.

Photo: taken in manual exposure mode, with ISO 200, f/8 and 1/800 sec. No PP except for moderate cropping, re-sizing, re-sharpening and adding simple frame.

Thanks to Dr. József Szabó (joska) for ID specification, and to you, who's reading this, for looking / commenting.

very beautiful..

Nice moment.

Hello Laszlo,
Well captured Sanderling in its natural habitat. I like reflection here. Well exposure too. I prefer, keeping 3 birds in the frame to get more strong composition and for that needed to wait for such situation (not possible here to remove a bird). Personal opinion 😉
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice weekend,
