Willet (Catoptrophorus semipalmatus)
Only this one lone Willet was wandering around the shallow pools behind the dunes, searching in vain for some small midday snack. He was a bird on the move, running or flying from one pool to the next.
Unfortunately (for me), it wasn't long before he gave up and shook the sand from his feet, winging it off to find some more lavish locale.
