Buff-breasted Sandpipers

After spending the best part of the yesterday sound-recording and photographing Lapland Buntings, I headed back to Eshaness at dawn to see if the two Buff-breasted Sandpipers were still present - and was pleasantly surprised to find that two had become three - and I had found a new bird with them! The light was absolutely amazing for the first few hours of the day, allowing the 1D Mark IV to really bring out intricate detail in the plumage.
