A quick stroll to the cove in Benodet , Brittany was rewarded by these brilliant birds dancing about in the sand , digging in with their beaks.
After some time searching they are Ruddy Turnstones.
Close up they are very ruddy their feathered are beautiful. They seemed completely preoccupied by whatever it was they were hunting in the sand and they let me sit and observe.
The beaches look brilliant today as the rain has stopped . This visit was very wet( see below!!)
Looking forward to exploring Brittany this week .
