Thanks to everyone who took the time to have a look at my last upload, it's very much appreciated.

This is a sanderling taken on the beach at Titchwell in Norfolk. Luckily we were there the week before the storm and the weather was very kind to us. These little guys scurry around feeding at the high water mark and get so caught up in their task that it's easy to get quite close to them.

A real 'eye-to-eye' shot, well done, Alex.
The reflection really sets the shot up too.
