Ruddy Turnstones at Brixham breakwater #3

I’ve been enjoying filming the Ruddy Turnstones in Brixham. I hope these tiny films have given you some insight into their lives.

Ruddy Turnstones breed on the northern-most coasts of Europe, Asia and North America and then migrate south to cover the coasts of almost the whole world. Here, orange shows their breeding area and blue their non-breeding area.

For these tiny birds, that’s a breathtaking life.
