Not particularly common around here though, the Common Sandpiper, thus nice to come across one. It's not the first time I've seen one down at the Waterworks Nature Reserve but it is the first time it's come close enough for a half decent shot. One needs a relatively high shutter speed with these birds as they bob up and down almost as much as Wagtails. Indeed, were that name not already taken I'm sure that's what we'd call them.
