Quite rough high tide splashing onto large man-placed rocks, with some green see-weed sort of plant growth. Sandpiper completely at 'home' with waves regularly splashing onto it. Vigorous feeding style while running (sometimes skidding on rock surface while landing). Observed from just 4-5 metres away with clear view for some 15 minutes.
