A splash of Greater Sand Plovers

These two Greater Sand Plovers were quite content to rest on the rocks while the waves broke behind them. The sea was hardly rough but every couple minutes a small wave would crash behind the birds.
I used a polariser filter to gain some extra contrast and the images have been sharpened and saturated a little to give some extra colour contrast between the sea, waves and bird.
