IJmuiden beach

I love bird pictures with a low early-morning sun behind my back. The color of this juvenile Bar-tailed Godwit (Limosa Lapponica/Rosse Grutto) is amazing in soft light. And the beach of IJmuiden is a place that never disappoints me. The other picture shows Sanderlings (Calidris alba/Drieteenstrandloper). When they are not in their usual running mode, they rest communally and do some feather care.
