    Just a sanderling? Almeria, Spain.

    Hiya, saw 2 of these birds yesterday at a small river mouth (leading into the sea) walking along the edge with turnstones, sanderlings, little ringed plovers, kentish plovers and a little stint. I'm fairly sure these are just sanderlings, but the bill looked a bit odd, and they have interesting...

    Gull/Wader/other seabird, I have no clue!! ---- Almeria, Spain.

    Ohh, really? I just looked online, and I can see that they have a white line along the outer edge of their wing, quite visible in flight. I think I can see small black eyes when I zoom in on the photo, like SBGs, so I think you could be right! I have seen them around here before, so I wouldn't...

    Hi people. I have included below the worst quality picture you'll be able to find on this forum.

    Really! Wow! I have been dying to see one for ages, they aren't a normal sighting round here!!!!! How can you be so sure that it is a peregrine?

    Do Kestrels fly very high up? --- Almeria, Spain.

    Here is another one of my rubbish photos. Saw this bird today whilst out walking. It was extremely high up in the sky (300-400m +). I see lots of kestrels around this area, but I have never seen any fly this high up. It was gliding, didn't even see it flap its wings, slowly flying in circles and...

    Tern Sp. --- Almeria, Spain.

    Ok, I understand. So I guess it's a sandwich tern. It was just the bill, it looked so weird. Thank you everyone for your help.
