Nice one Arks, saw my first one last Sunday at the Swakopmund salt works!

The ruddy turnstone, Arenaria interpres, is occasionally found inland. I got this one this morning at the Leeupan LBB gull site... some consolation for being foolhardy in periodically checking to see if the gull didn't return :hmz: :lol:
