Sanderling - The Sanderling breeds in the High Arctic areas of North America, Europe and Asia. If disturbed it prefers to run along the beach rather than fly. They have a fast cycling motion as they run along the sand. Sometimes in large flocks on sandy beaches. Always seem to be in a hurry in front of breaking waves in the search for food. These small waders were photographed at Mullaghmore Co. Sligo and Cabanas De Tavira in Portugal.
