These Sanderling were photographed on Carne Beach, in Wexford on 9th January of this year.  The colour ringed bird was tagged at Sandgerði, Iceland on 17th May 2009. From Iceland it arrived on Carne Beach in September 2009 and remained there into Spring.  Then it made the returned journey back to Iceland where it was spotted at Sandgerði, back where it originally came from.  In August 2010 the bird re-appeared on Carne beach and is overwintering at the moment.
