[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This picture shows a Turnstone (Arenaria interpres) on the island of Norderney. It is one individual of a flock of about twenty birds sitting in the grasswort of the salt marshes of the island. Thanks to Merlin who gave the ID to me.

Roland, your wish is ... ;-)
Turnstone Arenaria interpres. It is a colourful image of the bird in its environment, and the only issue I have with it is the rather harsh contrast.
Best wishes, Nigel.

Hello Roland,
Interesting to see this beautiful bird in the middle of this very special vegetation. Lovely shot.
