Wandering Tattler

with hardly any waders on the local shoreline I glanced up and saw this bird on a rock well offshore and assumed it was going to be a Surfbird as there were a few last September but it quickly materialised into a superb summer plumage Wandering tattler; the only previous one I had seen was a winter bird on the 17 mile drive at Monterey in December 1997 just 20 years back! it was never close staying on the rocks offshore even when they were getting swamped by the waves and of course I had left the 2x converter in the cottage -- all hand held and well cropped -- again I was amazed by the 5D4 AF ability given the breaking waves and the rock surface and white waves
