Dunlin are one of our commonest winter waders, arriving from breeding grounds in northern Europe to feed on our coastal mudlfats. In winter, they are grey and white to blend in with their winter habitat. However, in summer, their plumage becomes a colourful mix of chestnut feathering on the mantle and crown, contrasting with a black belly. This plumage allows them to be perfectly camouflaged as they nest on the ground in tundra and grasslands. Unforunately Ireland does not have many breeding pairs. This summer-plumaged bird was photographed on the small island of Inishbofin, Co. Donegal in June 2009.
