Formby beach

Red Knot, Calidris canutus, named after the king who proved he couldn't hold back the tide, and neither could these birds.


Sanderling trying to look like a Western sandpiper (body shape at least!). Notice that it has a metal ring on its right leg.


Sanderling. Notice that it has part of its right leg missing.
