sanderlings on the beach – faded waders: six weeks of courtship's colour, bonding, mating, rearing - done and gone. Now their feathers wear the Arctic wind, colours pushed to spangled greys, snow bellies, match-stalk legs strike out at break-neck speed, their high-cute factor, hard as quartz, their sooty legs, strong as jet, their wave-chase games, ruthless as a tungsten beak, each a tundra surface melt, each a survivor, full of pretty flowers with permafrost beneath
