Wader Season #6

   
There were still 4 or 5 Red Necked Stints at Kamiso this lunchtime.
And there were several other species of wader including 1 Ruff and 2 Bar Tailed Godwit.........

The light wasn't exactly ideal, harsh midday sun behind the birds..............










2 Grey Plover were also around but they didn't want to be photographed alas.
The Ruff didn't seem to mind the attention though.................






The Red Necked Stint was in better lighting.............





Nearer home there were more migrants passing through, Eastern Crowned Warblers, Siberian Stonechats and yet more Asian Brown Flycatchers............



Other stuff flitting around in the undergrowth was left unidentified, probably just Black Faced Buntings or the suchlike.
Here's a very scruffy looking young Bullheaded Shrike.........



The Night Herons are still playing hide and seek............



This blogger service has changed  its interface so I don't know how this will turn out.........
Great result for England the other night but lets not get too carried away. I've been watching England for over 30 years and am a little too jaded to really believe they can get past the last 8. Still when you think it was only just over 12 months ago they were drawing 0-0 at half-time against Andorra and qualification, hell even second place and a play off place,  seemed a long long way off. Unbelievable that Heskey is still playing. Yes I know he brings others into the game, roughs up opponents' defences etc etc but those 2 absolute sitters he missed!?! C'mon Emile even I could've scored them..............................................
England 's World Cup qualification and the Ashes Victory mean 2009 is shaping up to be a pretty good year for my armchair sports...............................
