Ruddy Turnstone - Steinvender - Arenaria interpres

Ruddy Turnstone are one of the most regualr and numerous waders at Stag Rocks with small numbers non-breeders apparently summering there. At least two populations may use the area - note the August peak (starts in late July and drops off at the end of August / early September). Together with Common Redshank this wader has one of the most stable populations from year to year.

The record count during the period I counted waders there is 137 individuals 02 December 1986.
