the purple sandpiper is a species I´ve never seen. I doubt it comes to Sweden. Both birds in your shot is gorgeous. :)

Very sweet snoozing away!

Wonderful! Usually the purples have their noses tucked and the ruddys are snooping around. These threw me for a loop for a second. Hmmm...the purple sandpipers look dark and the ruddies look light. Then I realized I had them backwards.

Great looking birds - I found PSP's hard to find when I was in the UK - even harder now!

Purple sandpipers are here too...but rare. So I'm jealous that you've taken such nice photos.
