Tringa stagnatilis

Marsh Sandpiper

The Marsh Sandpiper inhabits various terrestrial wetlands, either freshwater or brackish, rather than exposed intertidal mudflats. It forages by wading in shallow water, delicately pecking at insects and other invertebrates on the surface of the water while walking briskly and steadily, or occasionally sweeping its bill from side to side. Very occasionally they dash about or probe in deeper water, or pick at prey from mud at the water’s edge, and occasionally they follow ducks and other waterbirds to collect prey that has been disturbed.
