On one of my walks since I bought my tracker to see how may steps I walk in a day, I walked along Seacliffe Road in Bangor (my town) and found both Turnstone and Dunlin waiting for the very high tide to recede. In my walk today, I saw 21 different species of birds in 1/1/2. Not bad.
Although we see Turnstone all the year round here with there stocky build and orange legs and mostly dark brown on the back, the Dunlin is a bird we only see in his winter plumage and notice his back is a much lighter beige, has black legs and a slightly down curved beak. These bird species are often found together.
