Another Weekend Away #1


An Eastern Curlew near Yakumo a couple of days ago..................


We stayed overnight near Oshamanbe, hoping to see lots of waders.............

But we didn't. Only a few were around..................

The curlew was with 2 Whimbrel.



BIF shots at 700mm on a monopod are tricky..............




They blend into the background quite well as you can see.............




Other waders around included several Greenshank at various locales, Kentish and Little-ringed Plovers, Common Sandpiper and the inevitable Red-necked Stints.

Also around were Great and Little Egret, Great-crested Grebe, Osprey, Buzzard, Japanese Green Pigeon and a lone (very early) drake White-winged Scoter............

  1. I would be very happy if Red-necked Stints were "inevitable" around here!
