The Turnstone Arenaria interpres
Some fishermen were gutting fish not far away from where I took these shots, and threw the heads to the waiting gulls and the Turnstones got in on the action. They run really fast, and this one got there before a nearby gull.
There were a small group of them on the rocks and down below on the seaweed covered stones.
No matter how I tried I couldn't get a decent shot, especially one showing the eyes whch were very dark.
I'm posting this shot to show you the size of the Turnstone in comparison to the Herring Gull,. It almost disapears amonst the seaweed.
