Another Sunday in September
One of many Red Necked Stints around this last week. This one was at Oshamanbe this afternoon, there have also been quite a few in Kamiiso too.
Also around in the same place were a few Grey Tailed Tattler, a lone Greenshank, a couple of Mongolian Plover and a Sanderling in one of the stint flocks.
Yakumo was rather quiet. 1 Black Tailed Godwit, 9 Greenshank and 6 Eastern Curlew.............
Here is an adultof the latter species looking rather raggedy.
This is an immature with a much shorter bill.
Bit of a quiet 2013 for waders, still a couple of weeks to find something intersting though.
The Kingfisher spot was productive again.
These pics are cropped 50% or so. It is possible to get closer but I'd need camoflage. Perhaps next year................
A Black Browed Reed Warbler was singing nearby...............a bit odd considering the time of year.
Should I get up to follow the torture that will be the Ukraine v England game? It's just that if I don't watch it I think we'll nick a win.
Thanks for clicking this link.......
