On the water’s edge

The Sanderling is a small, energetic wading bird often seen running. It has a short straight black bill and medium length black legs.

I have posted pictures of this little bird before both single birds and larger groups both in summer and winter colours.

Today I spotted this single bird dancing right on the waters edge in the breaking waves amongst a group of Turnstones. As you can see this bird is sporting its winter pale colours.
