Saunton Sands

A flock of 40 to 60 Small Waders including Sanderling were still moving through from further south to refuel at Saunton Sands on Monday & Tuesday morning of this week on the falling tide. This morning none at all.

It would be interesting to know how long it takes a Sanderling to reach their breeding grounds. Does anyone know of any satellite tracking of this species?
