More waders but no photos of them..........


There were a few waders around again at the weekend but poor light on Sunday meant almost all the photos were sent to the recycle bin.

The above Red Necked Stints were at Oshamanbe on Sunday, there were about 40 of them. There were also 10 or so Mongolian Plover with a lone Great Knot whilst at Yakumo there were 6 Eastern Curlew, 1 Bar Tailed Godwit, some Commn Sandpiper and 3 Greenshank. At Sawara on Monday there were more stints as well as 2 Kentish Plover and a Wood Sandpiper.

Black Headed Gulls, Great Egret and Black Necked Grebe have all returned, it has got pleasantly cooler too: autumn is on the way. We saw Oriental Honey Buzzard and Goshawk, the raptors have started moving..................

  2. It is a nice shot and good observations. It's feeling like Autumn in Niigata now in the mornings and afternoons. Must keep my eyes out for migrations too!

  4. Don't worry about the pictures Stu. The numbers and species are more than impressive, mouth watering I think.

  5. Looks like a great variety of species - enough to keep a birder happy for a while.
