Jubilee Pool purple patch

The sea wall and rocks adjacent to the Jubilee Pool at Penzance are well known for the wintering flock of Purple Sandpipers.  At high tide a good number of birds will allow close approach .  I took these shots last week in good light.


  1. Superb images of the Purple Sand mate. I hope they don't concrete this area for a new docking area for the Scillonian.

  2. Great shots Steve. I remember going to Penzance purposely to see them on the rocks by the Jubilee Pool. I was not disappointed.
