Some passage waders



It was raining this morning and one of the flooded muddy fields to the north of town had some waders................


There were 2 BlackWinged Stilt. a scarce but regular 'overshoot' species to south Hokkaido and always nice to see.






In the same area was a flock of 15 or so Wood Sandpiper, one of the commonest spring passage waders...............

  1. I've watched the two same species today at Tirant, Menorca. No pictures like those though.

    1. I know, I'm shocking even myself and there is still more to come. It's been a pretty intense week..........
