I received a phone call from Mike Weedon this afternoon to let me know that there was a Sanderling present at Maxey GP. These birds do pass our PBC area on migration and May is the traditional time of year for this to happen. The drizzle that was present today `forced` this bird and 6 Dunlin down onto the mud of Maxey where it proceeded to feed.

This bird is number 159 on my PBC list for 2011, just one behind Mr. Weedon!


  1. This is pretty special John and one of my favourite little birds of the shoreline.

  2. Hi Roy,
    Thankyou. The Sanderling is my Mum`s favourite bird, she calls them `windy up birds`!


Thank you for taking the time to comment on my humble blog.
