Purple Sandpipers

I made a new friend today, a purple sandpiper. I had not photographed one so it was a nice distraction while waiting for seals to resurface. It was fast and hard to focus on and if you add this to a slightly older worn out lens then.........

I was having real difficulty getting the 600mm from Uni to focus today, I had it on a sturdy gimbal head and still the shots were very soft. Oh well, I know where the bird might be again, so if im in the area i will check back to have a look.
