More from Yorkshire: Filey Brigg waders

Some further pics captured in gloomy conditions at the weekend. A confiding group of waders on the rocky shoreline at Filey included 13 Purple Sandpipers, a species I don’t see particularly often (or particularly close) down south. Given a bit of time and basic fieldcraft (keeping still and low down), they came in quite close allowing these photos to be taken. If I’m up that way again on a sunnier day, I’d like to have another go since there’s plenty of room for improvement… or maybe the Purps in Lowestoft are calling when I’m back in East Anglia.
