My venture into the world of bird photos
Are these dotterels?

Great, long shadows.
I think they are sandpipers too Pete, but my knowledge of birds is postage stamp sized, unlike the other TTL birders here! YOu will I am sure get a definite ID before too long. The RSPB site is good as is the BBC .... but you probably know that already. Andrea
A fine shot, Pete. Yes it is addictive.... and good fun and challenging.
Not sure what they are, but they look quite a lot like the dotterels (now called plovers)
here. The markings are different and the beaks a little longer.
Size looks the same and the preference for running rather than flying seems the same too.
Hope to see more Pete and next you'll be making atrip to the library to study the
book of Birds on English beaches :)
Nice job, Pete. Definitely in the Sandpiper family, but I don't know for
sure which one. I'm no expert!
Interesting first bird photo!
Interesting bird shot in nice light.
Nice foray into bird photography, Pete. Are you hooked yet? LOL
The one up front seems to notice the camera!

Like Bob, I have no idea what they are.
But it is one fine shot though.
Thanks Bob for the warning - I'll stop right now - lol
No idea on the ID. Terry or Hal will know.
As a rehabbed birder, I must warn you.... it's addicting.
