Birds on a Beach

I was in West Cork about a month ago and as I was driving back towards Bandon (on a road overlooking a beach) I spotted lots of birds congregating on the sand. I stopped the car on the edge of the narrow road and wound down the window to take this photo. The weather wasn’t that great and I was kind of blocking the road which thankfully was quiet at the time. The tide was very far out and the birds looked like they were gathering with intent, I can only presume that there was something interesting or nutritious in the sand to draw the attention of these birds.

Have you heard of the Exploding Whale? Maybe the same thing happened here. Just a suggestion...
Perhaps someone had swapped the sea with glue for a bit and the birds landed a little to early.
