Description

Turnstone

Smaller than a redshank, turnstones have a mottled appearance with brown or chestnut and black upperparts and brown and white or black and white head pattern, whilst their underparts are white and legs orange. They spend most of their time creeping and fluttering over rocks, picking out food from under stones.

Interesting and possibly comical example of a 'one legged bird'. Before getting too sorry for the poor creature though, this is how some birds minimise heat loss from the parts of their body not covered by feathers.
