Running Sanderling - Nickerson Beach, New York

August 29, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Often you see Sanderlings running back and forth on the beach, picking or probing for tiny prey in the wet sand left by receding waves. Legs are just a blur and you may ask yourself: "Are they catching anything?" Here is a short video played at normal and slowed down speed. You should be able to see this Sanderling picking up a small worm right before the wave comes...

 

As you can imagine, it wasn't that easy to follow this fast runner :)
