You can see why they are called 'ruddy' turnstone, when you see them in summer trim.
Summer plummage makes these a fabulous looking bird. I spotted loads of these on Mull and was fascinated and enchanted by these lovely little birds. We don't get many around Merseyside for some reason!
Just go out there and do it!!!
If you want to see turnstone close up you can not beat the car park on the sea front at Scarborough. They shuffle around the cars eating the left over chips etc. just like chaffinches or magpies in picnic areas. I'll try and remember to take my camera next time I'm down there.
