Purple Sandpiper

Some things are better captured in still images, others in moving ones. Feeding behaviour is one of the latter. These Purple Sandpipers run up and down slippery rocks, sliding down every now and then and running for a larger wave when needed. In the meantime they keep on pecking in a high frequency in order to get their food. In the movie below I tried to capture some of this.
