Purple Sandpiper

 A winter visitor that frequents rocky shorelines.
I searched along the rocky cliffs on the west coast of Portland Bill and found a small flock searching for food. 
It was quite amusing to see them feeding on the rocks and just avoiding the crashing waves that smashed against the rocks by flying just far enough away, to then quickly return to the same spot.
This continued all the time I was observing them.
