Sanderlings- After waiting for all the dog-walkers to leave a small, sandy beach in the North East the other day, the beautiful Sanderlings swooped in and started their fast and furious feeding along the sea edge. Sanderlings visit many of our sandy beaches during winter, and are easy to identify in their white and grey winter plumage, with black bill and legs. They are sometimes in mixed flocks with other waders. Sanderlings fly off in spring, to breed in the High Arctic. Conditions: Cold wind and bright sunny day. Temperature: Max 5- Min 3c.IMG_7200IMG_7352IMG_7419IMG_7359
