The Purple Sandpipers of Penzance













































































I took these images of Purple Sandpipers on Battery Rocks in Penzance when I was down in Cornwall in February. They are small birds and can be easily missed as they are very well camouflaged by the rocks. They appear quite trusting and it is possible to get quite close to them as these images show. I do love their colours and enjoy capturing their images when I can.
