Sanderling

The Sanderling (Afrikaans name, Drietoonstrandloper) is a small sandpiper with a stubby short bill. They are a summer Palearctic visitor, mainly to sandy beaches throughout the coastal areas of Southern Africa.

Usually seen in huge flocks, running in and out of the receding waves, they are really very pretty birds. We see them in the West Coast National Park.
