On the beach - a Purple patch

  • Hi

    I was making a phone call when this little guy walked under my (tripod) legs

  • That's a beauty S are they usually so confiding or is it a youngster?

  • Is that a Purple Sandpiper? If so that must be quite an unusual sighting in Norfolk at this time of year. I wish waders were so confiding with me.

  • Phone call on Titchwell beach, what size Ariel were you carrying around to get a signal? Smashing photo, is it some kind of sandpiper?

  • Hi-

    it's a juvenile Purple sandpiper- probably never seen a human ( or a Norfolk Birder) before so very confiding; I sat down and it worked its way around me;

    I've seen juveniles at this time of year in Norfolk before

  • Yep, it's a purple sandpiper as Seymouraves has said. there has been a very confiding individual at Titchwell for a few days now.
