Here is some information about the Sandpiper:
A wader bird with contrasting brown upperparts and white underparts. It habitually bobs up and down, known as 'teetering', and it 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 it is know to breed along fast rivers and by lakes, lochs and reservoirs in Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the north of England. In winter it can sometimes be seen along the south coast, and on spring and autumn passage it can be found elsewhere in the UK, near any freshwater areas and sometimes on estuaries.
