It's too easy to spend all your time running around at the moment. Take a few seconds to sit back and admire this beautiful sanderling photo, taken by Andrew Parkinson and available through the RSPB Images photo library.

Sanderlings are wading birds, about the same size as starlings. They breed in the Arctic but some spend winter around the coastline of the UK, where you can see them running along the tideline like clockwork toys. Fascinating fact: sanderlings have only three toes (all pointing forwards).
