A small upright bird on the ground nearly caught me out, thinking it would be a wheatear, but the strong eye stripe and streaky back made me look again in time to see that it was a whinchat. A wheatear was present further along just for comparison.
I walked along the nice new boardwalk to the point, where a purple sandpiper popped out from under the timbers. So I got a chance to play at digiscoping. It was a bit dark under there so not brilliant results,but a bit better when it came up higher and spent some time having a good preen.
Walking back towards the fort I almost missed the juvenile dunlin feeding quite happily just on the seaward side of the wall. It was very approachable, nicely marked AND in good light so I'm a bit happier with this shot. It's not easy this digiscoping - I find it very difficult to see the screen to check the focusing - maybe I need to get a different camera (any excuse).
