SANDERLINGS, DELPHI BEACH, ABACO: BATHTIME

Finally, we are back at Rolling Harbour HQ. Mrs RH has thoughtfully bought her computer for work reasons, so this time I don’t have to fiddle around with my iPhone to produce a post. First up is Sanderling Bathtime. It is 5.30 pm. The sun is sinking in the early evening sky. The tide is on the rise at the north end of the Delphi beach where the reef joins the land. There is a small spit of sand that will be covered quite soon, but meanwhile two dozen sanderlings mixed in with assorted ruddy turnstones are doing their idiot feeding thing, rushing around on their tiny legs, stabbing in the sand, and generally behaving like clockwork toys. Meanwhile a handful have found the fun to be had in the swirling tide as it pours round the head of the reef onto the sand spit. Yes, it’s sandpiper bathtime!
