A different pair
We took a quick look on the beach ar Nanaehama yesterday morning. It was overcast and a little breezy: the tail end of a typhoon and the whole day was a lot more more bearable than the last few weeks.
There were 2 Great Knot on the same part of the beach as 10 or so days ago, a different pair I think, one of them had a slightly deformed bill.
They were extremely tame and just jogged down the beach feeding in the surf.
These photos are not cropped (or only very slightly).
As you can see it was a little dark.........
Not much else around except lots of Red Necked Stints here and at Kamiiso. A Spoon Billed Sandpiper was near Sapporo yesterday, I'll head over to Kamiiso this afternoon..........it's about 1 day south as the small wader flies, you never know eh?
Liverpool looked utterly toothless last night............and Gerard looks just about ready to call it a day I think. Sad but maybe true.
Thanks for clicking this link.......
