The strong western winds last weekend caused a rapid rise of the seawater level and by Saturday morning the sea already splashed only a few centimetres from our camera, on Sunday there was already deep choppy sea.

Before moving it the doings of waders could be observed directly at the camera and it was a good opportunity to identify bird species. Determining waders is otherwise a tricky enterprise even for experienced birdwatchers because of their similarity.
