Common Sandpiper

The Common Sandpiper (Actitis hypoleucos) is a small Palearctic wader. It is a smallish wader with contrasting brown upperparts and white underparts. It habitually bobs up and down, known as 'teetering', and has a distinctive flight with stiff, bowed wings. Its presence is often betayed by its three-note call which it gives as it flies off. In summer is breeds along fast rivers and by lakes and lochs. They forages by sight on the ground or in shallow water, picking up small food items such as insects, crustaceans and other invertebrates; it may even catch insects in flight.
