The fixed and finished image. I wouldn't usually invest so much time into one photo, but I'm not likely to get another shot like this of sanderlings so a day well spent I think.

Sanderlings? - Sutherland

Just when I thought I was beginning to understand one or two of the sandpipers, I came across these earlier today on Brora beach. I thought the sanderlings had gone, but these were behaving just like...

Little terns - Highlands

Met this group of 5 fledglings earlier today. I'm pretty sure they are little terns as there were adults flying around squeaking at them.

I'm pretty sure it isn't the seals scoffing them. By the way, I spotted 2 adult shelducks yesterday with 3 ducklings. Nice to see them here!

A few arctic tern chicks and fledglings taken over the last couple of weeks. The chicks are mostly all flying now. They'll soon be off again I guess. I'll miss them.
