Kentish Plovers on Hayle Estuary

These two shots were the best I could get of this male and female Kentish Plover today. They were taken looking into the sun and at a distance of 50 yards. Cornwall averages a couple records annually. KP's are normally recorded at Marazion beach and are unusual on estuaries. Exposure was increased to +0.7EV. Aperture Priority F/7.1. ISO 200. Shutter 1/1250s. Focal Length 1000mm (600mm plus 1.7xTC.)
