Turnstone

I popped down to the beach this lunchtime to try to get some photos of two Black Redstarts that I had seen the previous day. no luck but I got this shot of a turnstone. There were a number of these and the air was full of the sound of stones being turned and clinking on each other. If ever there was an appropriately named bird this must be it.
