The small White by thrumyeye The small White by thrumyeye
The Sanderling (Calidris alba) is a small plump sandpiper, 1820 cm in length.
Its weight ranges from 40-100 g.
The winter bird is very pale, almost white apart from a dark shoulder patch.
This is the source of the specific name, alba, which is the Latin for "white".

Beautiful
Those wings must flap fast - even the 1/1000s didn't quite freeze them!
