This sandpiper lives along the banks of rivers and loves to fly from one bank to another. For this habit in some countries this bird is called "carrier".
Somewhere in early May, you can already see how they run along the banks and fly very low over the water. Not forgetting the loud shouting their squeaky voice.
This dude was on the shore, where it was impossible to reach. Therefore, I turned on the recording of the voice of these birds, and then he flew out of the bushes and, flying past me, sat down somewhere in the middle of the forest. Slowly sneaking up to him, I took these photos.
