Sanderlings, bar-tailed godwits, dunlin of Terschelling beach


Sanderling, on Terschelling, 28 September 2019

Still 28 September 2019 on the North Sea beach of Terschelling island. The most conspicuous birds there were sanderlings, like this one.

The sanderlings were in the company of these two bar-tailed godwits.

Later, a dunlin passed them. That species is more common on the muddy Wadden Sea coast than on the sandy North Sea coast.

As we walked back from the beach, a small young natterjack toad crossed the footpath.
