Spotted Sandpiper (Actitis macularius)

Last one from me. A lovely bird - in stunning scenery. Can be elusive at times, commuting frequently between its favourite spot (where the waterfall meets the lake) and the south shore (with the white cottage). Probably still around and well worth the effort...
Equipment: Canon.

Nice to finally locate this smart bird after a 4 hour search. I decided not to clone the Bee out as it makes for a more interesting shot :).
Equipment: Nikon D7200+300f4vr+tc1.7.
