Everything about sanderlings seems to happen fast.

Sprint formation

They run across the sand fast, they change directions fast, they takeoff fast and land fast.

Fast legs

And sometimes they even come flying into the frame a little too fast.

Sanderling sprint

It would have been great to have some more space on the left of this shot, but sometimes things just happen too fast.


  1. These are great shots of the sanderlings. It's hard to get them because they move so fast. I love to watch them running around the beach.

  2. Thanks, Dina! They are definitely fun to watch as they run in and out with each crashing wave. they seem to have endless energy.
