I thought Turnstones preferred more stones and seaweed but these orange legged dumpy birds behaved more like Sanderling!
No interactions present.
In some places Turnstones behave more like 'sparrows or pigeons' and run around at your feet for scraps of bread!
(I don't think that this is something that should be encouraged though).
Amazing how some birds adapt to opportunities isn't it? Although I still have to marvel at Turnstones from a distance.

I know its disgusting, but I have witnessed Turnstone eating freshly laid dog muck. Also scraps of bread thrown for the gulls

Perhaps not all behaviour is that interesting!! That said the smell from some seaweed makes you wonder about how appetising it can be!
