Wader season again
Another hot humid day........................
There was a huge swell in the ocean (maybe a typhoon further south?) meaning the beaches were being battered by huge waves. There wasn't much space for any waders but we found a few common ones sheltering on some higher ground.
5 Grey Tailed Tattlers and 2 Red Necked Stints............the 2 standard waders in autumn migration. Not great pics, fast moving birds in poor light with the dodgy AI Servo on my 7D MK2.
Not much else about. Flocks of hirundines (including Sand Martin) gathering in the fields, a few Great Egret here and there, Osprey, Peregrine, Japanese Green Pigeon etc. At Kamiiso there was a lone Terek Sandpiper and the first Black Headed Gull of the season.
