A few photos of the very confiding Common Sandpiper on the sailing club bank of Stewartby Lake. The sandpiper came within 12 feet of Dave Ball's car. Unfortunately, the combination of the poor light and the highly active nature of the bird made it very hard to get both the head and tail in focus at the same time. I'll hopefully get another chance when the light is better... The Grey Wagtail was also on the sailing club bank. Photos by Martin Green.
