Parkie: Really enjoy the composition and wide crop ratio. Nice deep, rich foreground and background layers that balance each other.

Are you using the Rudy Edge- tripod, stool, remote trigger, and (debatably) camouflage cap. I almost always shoot upwards, so these are not advantages. However, for shorebirds, the difference between good and great.

Thank you for the kind words Iain.

As far as any Rudy-isms go, all I used was a tripod as low as my knees and back would allow for an extended period of time.  Definitely going to search out a stool for future use.

Whenever possible I try to get as close to eye level with the subject as I find it creates a more intimate and interesting photo.  Also it helps with the background especially at this location as it's quite cluttered with branches and other debris.
