Purple Sandpiper at Gwithian

Below are some close up images of a Purple Sandpiper. This adult became quite agitated when it spotted a Peregrine Falcon high in the sky above it. The neck stretching and head tilting are all typical signs of a nearby threat. The light was perfect early in the morning and all shots were taken with a Nikon D2xs camera on a tripod.
