Autumn 2016



It felt very autumnal today...................


We were in the Yakumo/Oshamanbe area and there were still a few waders around. Dunlin were in several places..............










And there were also 2 Spotted Redshank, a Common Sandpiper and a lone Grey-tailed Tattler........



Whooper Swan, various winter duck, Great Crested and Black-necked Grebe. Great Egret, Hawfinch were around as were various raptors. There were several Peregrine at Yakumo but none came close enough for a decent shot.


This Osprey was late in the season..............


I counted seven species of gull including Kittiwake as well as the first Glaucous and Vega Gulls of the season. There were quite a few Glaucous Winged Gulls too.............


Autumn is well underway, hopefully one or two interesting things will turn up..............

  1. Great series of shorebird shots, Stuart, and a nice variety of species.

  2. Nice waders and I'd be happy with that peregrine shot. Still haven't seen an osprey around here for yonks.
