Dunlin (Calidris alpina) on the Houb at Baltasound
With the fields covered in snow, and the tide in, the birds have no alternative but to sleep out the high tide. Common wintering birds along the British coast, Baltasound is one of only 3-4 sites in Shetland with a regular wintering flock of Dunlin.
