Could someone ID this for me please i am really struggling with it.
Looks like a cockle.
In reply to RoyW:
...Oh, and it's a nice photo of a Knot with the cockle!
I don't think we've seen your humourous side before Roy. Nice one.

In reply to TeeJay:
LOL@Roy Thankyou for the ID , does the bill look a little long or is it just a optical solution :-)
Hello BamBam great photo! It is difficult to identify from this angle but I believe it is actually a Dunlin in winter plumage. Due to leg color.
In reply to Charlotte A:
Thankyou Roy and Charlotte :-)
In reply to BamBam:
I think it looks a lot like a sanderling.
here is a photo I have attached.
In reply to Michael:
I think it is more likely a Knot Michael
Birding is for everyone no matter how good or bad we are at it,enjoy it while you can
In reply to Seaman:
Yeh it's probably more like a knot but it still looks a lot like a sanderling because of the angle.
The legs also look really black.
