Run Sanderling Run!
By now you've probably concluded that I am enamored with the Sanderling. We saw them at each beach we went to and I could not resist watching their antics.
They stay at the edge of the water, going towards the ocean as the water goes out . . .
. . .and, running like crazy towards shore when the water came in. Isn't he darling?!
No matter how many times I watched him do this I never tired of it. And he never got swept away by a wave, believe me, I held my breath with anticipation each time.
Btw, this beach was more broken shell (is that called shale?) than it was sand. It sure made for a beautiful color!
I guess he got full. Doesn't he look coy?
