A brief encounter on the beach
A Great Knot on the beach at Nanaehama this afternoon.
There were 2 of them, one was very tired and was resting most of the time.
It was limping slightly but it could fly and feed. Both individuals were very tame, some of these shots aren't cropped at all.
Actually I've noticed Great Knots always seem very tame. It's odd how some species are extremely shy (like Terek Sandpiper and Eastern Curlew for example) whereas other closely related species allow very close approach...........
No other waders around, just 1 Red Necked Stint.
Still hot and humid as hell.
Thanks for clicking this link.......
