you’ve come a long way
A typical Turnstone weighs about the same as a typical bar of soap.
It’s noticeably bigger than the Sanderling in the last post, but still pretty small.
Incredibly size doesn’t hold this creature from large scale adventures.
Scientists have tracked them migrating over 16,000 mile a year.
What’s more our 55,000 pairs will tend to fly independently, rather than in large flocks like Swallows or House Martins.
That’s more than most of us manage in our cars.
But get this, your car will probably be scrapped before this bird stops flying.
Typically they have a 20 year life span.
