Look out for these busy, little, noisy birds. Redshanks need to feed along the waterline for shrimps, snail and worms and skitter about nervously, in and out of the wavelets.

Here, in our harbour, their only opportunity is near low tide in Broadhaven; pretty birds with a distinctive, shrill, piping call "tew, tew". You'll see them in winter and summer.
