Baird's Sandpiper

A couple of portraits of the juvenile Baird's Sandpiper which graced Davidstow Airfield, Cornwall during early September (images taken Sept 7th). I never tire of seeing this fantastic species, particularly so when in such fresh plumage - they really are subtle yet stunning. At times, it showed down to four metres alongside its Dunlin escort.
