Piro Piro Piccolo

There’s a Common Sandpiper on the River Teign. I can’t get close to it, though. I had much better views previously:

I’ll just have to be happy with this view:

Their Italian name is Piro Piro Piccolo, which suits them beautifully. I think I need a small portable hide if I’m ever going to get closer views; and waterproof clothes, given the state of that mud.
