Sanderling roosting on Oxwich Beach

This attractive little wader is found on most of our sandy beaches in winter, with favoured sites including Margam, Aberavon, Crymlyn, Swansea Bay as-well-as Oxwich. However, the expansive sands of Cefn Sidan in Carmarthenshire hold the largest numbers, for example 1700 were counted on 27 Nov 2010 by Wendell Thomas.
