Is this little bird a stint?
Found on the waters edge,,very busy,,quick movements and tiny (5 to 6 inches)
Your bird is a Sanderling. 'Busy, quick movements', black legs and overall grey/white plumage are characteristic of this species. Stints are even smaller than Sanderling and aren't usually found on sandy/rocky seashores.
Hope this is helpful?
