Sanderling Y2L at Six Men

Every year a large flock of Sanderlings "Calidris alba" winter at a small fishing village called Six Men's, located in the west coast parish of St. Peter. With a ready supply of food from the fish market, this flock continues to grow.  A Sanderling tagged Y2L was first observed last year at this location and again this year. This gives proof that the same flock returns to this location yearly.  Sanderling Y2L was reported to bandedbirds.org.
