The Padle Gaon Project

The Padle Gaon stretch post the grassland is presently witnessing large scale digging.
Whether legal or not is unknown.
The trucks have made motorable tracks on the mud.
Along the tracks are small pools of water, besides the creek inlet.
Well, this little Sandpiper was merrily enjoying one such pool.
The light source was behind the chap, but made for a decent shot.
Sandpipers (Actitis hypoleucos) forage on the ground or in shallow water, picking up small food items such as insects, crustaceans and other invertebrates; they may even catch insects in flight.
