Filming the waders in Wales Day 3 Turnstones and Ringed plovers

Today I went looking for Ringed plovers but I ended up finding a group of turnstones waiting for the high tide to reseed. This is the first turnstone I had ever seen and there were about 25-30 and when I got about a 2 metres away they just stayed still and if I pushed in closer they flew a few metres further down the coastal walkway. I had my DSLR and camcorder with me so I managed to film and photograph them.
Later that day as the tide went back out I saw a group of Ringed plovers adults and juviniles on a small pebbled part of the beach quite close to the sea wall so I was in perfect position to get some great photos.
