Sanderling

Calidris alba

Notes:

These cute little darlings chased the waves and turning around in the neck of time to avoid getting washed to sea. Sometimes one made a late escape and fell over only to gether itself as quickly as possible, its feathers wet and ruffled. When in flight, they display great formation flying skills. Staying just above the water and scanning the whole water region near the shore.
