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 running and fluttering over rocks, picking out food from under stones.

Turnstones can be seen across Scilly, most easily at times on Town Beach, St Mary's
