Sandpipers at Ballyquintin

There is the tiny seaweed covered beach just east of Ballyquintin Point, where you can often see small waders (possibly purple sandpipers) busy feeding. This toccata is about movement – the scuttling of the birds over the seaweed and the rocks, and the movement of the water and of the waves along the shoreline.
