Waders arrive................


A couple of Sanderling at Sawara this afternoon. Not much around anywhere.......a lone Wood Sandpiper hiding in the ricefields near town a couple of days ago, a lone Red Necked Stint and Grey Tailed Tattler near the Sanderlings...........

It was very hot at the start of the month which was followed by a big typhoon and now the weather is just meh. At least it's not too hot to sleep...............

  1. Nice shot of the Sanderlings. Someone reported a Wood Sandpiper in Melbourne over the weekend so the south is obviously starting.

  2. Hi Stuart! The weather has been up and down here also, it's a bit crazy for this time of year. I like your photo of these little Sanderlings, cute speckled guys!
    Enjoy your week.

    1. I've only seen about 10 individuals of about 5 species so far John............they'd be lost in the middle of Mai Po.

  4. It's been a "Wood Sand August" here - very unusual. Had another today but waiting for a bigger push of most waders.
