Tringa totanus


Common redshanks in breeding plumage are a marbled brown color, slightly lighter below. In winter plumage they become somewhat lighter-toned and less patterned, being rather plain greyish-brown above and whitish below. They have red legs and a black-tipped red bill, and show white up the back and on the wings in flight.


Two specimens- one was by the water on a sandy beach at low tide- and the other was standing on some wood near the beaches car park (which was fairly close to the shore).
