30 x 30 x 2 cm oil painting on traditional canvas

The common sandpiper is a smallish wader with contrasting brown upperparts and white underparts. It habitually bobs up and down, known as ‘teetering’, and has a distinctive flight with stiff, bowed wings. Its presence is often betrayed by its three-note call which it gives as it flies off.

In summer the common sandpiper breeds along fast rivers and by lakes, lochs and reservoirs in Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the north of England. In winter it may be seen along the south coast. On its spring and autumn passage, the common sandpiper can be found elsewhere in the UK, near any freshwater areas and on some estuaries.
