After an unsuccessful trip to see the North Yorkshire eagle owl, we headed over to the coast and spent a couple of hours on a bright, breezy beach photographing Sanderling at South Gare. The beach is quite pleasant though the old industrial back drop is a bit more insulubrious. There were one or two species of waders on the beach but just where the snady area meets the rocky foreshore, there was a small huddle of sanderling roosting on the high tide. They were a bit skittish and didn’t allow too close an approach, but we were able to get close enough to create a few portraits of them on the rocks. Many were really coming into full summer plumage and were really quite different from the slivery white colour of winter.
