Dunlin - West Kirby

On a low tide at West Kirby you can see lots of waders scuttling about the pools that have been left behind on the beach. Busily probing away with there long bills. A few weeks ago, there were mainly Redshanks and Turnstones, but in amongst them was just one solitary Dunlin. Keeping himself to himself, but with the 'safety in numbers' attitude of sticking with the other waders. Always nice to see them.

  6. So that's a dunlin? I would have probably called it a sandpiper. We don't often get to the ocean so I am rather ignorant about sea birds.

  7. Now I know what one looks like. I am not very good on wading bird ID except for the herons. More eyes is more eyes for trouble... Cute bird Adam...Michelle
