Default Friendly bird

I don't know what type of bird this is, but he wasn't afraid of me. A welcome change from birds that take off if I come within 100 yards of them.

I hear you. A wonderful shot, I can just feel the intensity of that sun and sand.

Really superb low angle photo and looking at the shadow it was taken in perfect lighing. I think it's a Sanderling in winter plumage. K to you

Thanx for the kind words and the ID. I was pretty happy with this shot, myself. It was worth grovelling around in the sand to get.
