9 May 15 - Sanderling

I popped down to South Haven in the early evening to see if the were any interesting Terns feeding off the Poole Harbour mouth. There was only a few of the local breeding Sandwich Terns & Common Terns. However, there was this lone gorgeous breeding plumage Sanderling at Pilots Point. It's not uncommon to see Sanderling around South Haven providing you can get out before the hordes of dogwalkers feel the need to let their animals run riot on the beach & flush every Bird in sight. But normally they are in a Winter plumage or transitioning to Summer plumage at this time of the year. But it's not often I see a Sanderling looking this smart.
