My good friend Pete wanted to test out his zoom lens that he has been having trouble with, so I suggested he has a go on one of my cameras.
A good test is with the Purple Sandpipers on the pier as they do sit pretty still most of the time. So, it was that we ventured out there in a pretty strong wind. It was actually quite an experience with some massive waves crashing on the beach.
Once on the pier though we had a large count of Purple Sandpipers with 21 seen, certainly my largest ever count there.
