Can anyone please confirm this bird’s identity ? This is the closest match I found in the " RSPB Complete birds of Britain "Taken on the rocks around “The Cob” at Lyme Regis .Canon 40D + 100-400 Is Zoom
purple sandpiper sea bird
Lovely capture Phil, and it sure looks like it.
Thanks Richard and for the link , now joined the community at RSPB and put up some bird pics , loads of info there . You’ll have to come up to HAM WALL reserve in the summer , good pub next to the car park and absolutely flat walking !!
