Turnstone (Arenaria interpres)

Two more Turnstones from a recent trip to Salthouse beach just a few minutes from home in North Norfolk. Interestingly, according to the BTO, the Turnstone – which can flip over stones of almost its own body weight – has been recorded feeding on a variety of food sources, including birds' eggs, chips and even carrion.
