Take a hike! (with me?) Bull Island, Ireland

Had a nice little hike around Bull Island, which I believe is a man made sand island in Dublin Bay. It’s also a wildlife refuge (or parts of it anyway, parts of it are two golf courses haha) and you can walk around and admire the shorebirds and marram grass.

Anyone know what these little guys are? I’m terrible at shorebirds, but they’re so cute. They ran sideways to avoid the waves!
