Sanderling? (Turkey) (1 Viewer)


Medicinal Birding
Hi everyone!
I'm back with another question--and (even though they are pretty poor in quality) I've got photographs, too!

I took this photographs in a large delta in Mediterranean Turkey; in 25 February 2012.

So, there were +20 Sanderlings, so I took a few pics of them; however, a few hours later; while playing with the camera, I accidentally erased the photographs:(

However, a few days ago while I was checking the "Trash" in my computer I came across this.

Can this be a Sanderling?

(Sorry for the poor quality. These have been taken with Canon EOS 60D+400mm)

It's like water off a duck's back!
I'd considered Kentish Plover, which it could well be but it's difficult to judge size. The breast sides seem to go too far round to what I'd expect for KP hence my suggestion.

Defo not a Sanderling.
