Spotting small waders.

After several posts of Sanderling close up  I thought I would post the more usual view you get of this little wader. The Blackheaded Gull will give you a scale to work with when spotting Sanderlings. These little birds love to run along and can reach quite a speed in their energetic sprinting along the waters edge.

They will fly in small flocks low over the water and are often spotted with other small shore birds such as Turnstones and Dunlin.
