Default Ringed Plover and Ruff

Went to the beach in Marsa Alam every day for a week looking for waders and only saw 2 Ringed Plovers and 2 Ruff. Was very disappointed but at least I got some shots.

That's a very good series Kevin. The Plover are a difficult bird to expose correctly with their white undersides and darker coloured wings. Very well done here.

Excellent photos Kevin and it looks like you were also enjoying the sunshine on your shoot.
