Turnstone (Arenaria interpres)


A trio of Turnstones – one of the shots designed to show just how effective their camouflage is – from 30 minutes spent on the beach this lunchtime.

  1. I really had to check that last pic to see if there was more than one bird.... even now I'm not absolutely sure I'm not missing any!
    They're always great birds to spend time with.
