Putting on a winters coat

The Sanderling is a small, energetic wading bird often seen running . It has short straight black bill and medium length black legs.It is pale grey above and white underneath I posted these pictures back in the summer.

In winter this bird is pale in colour. I took the pictures below today in the same spot showing their winter markings and although the pictures taken in low light could be better I think they give a good overview between winter and summer plumage.
