Well done. The light here is terrible at the moment and these are not easy birds to get close to unless you're in a hide and get lucky.

Thank you so much. I'm not good with ID's. I do believe they are Sanderlings . If someone else knows please chime in.

Indeed they are! :-) Nice shot. You almost got them synchronised!

Thanks Jack, this was from a slipway, there was two of them, but they were so fast.

I always find black birds (as opposed to blackbirds) difficult.

And you never know where they'll bob up next, either - up/down, up/down, like little corks:rolleyes:
