2018 late Summer trip #1


We just got back from a 3 night camping trip. The weather was awful: strong winds coming in off the sea, heavy rain...................

We stayed 3 nights in Oshamanbe and our focus was on waders. We managed to see quite a lot over the 4 days despite the weather.


North of Yakumo there was a lot of flotsam and jetsam on the beach. Hidden among it and well camouflaged weer 30 or so Pacific Golden Plover.

Many still had some summer plumage.............





Difficult to see..................






Until they flew off.


Also in the crud washed up on the beach were a couple of Ruddy Turnstone..............

    1. I didn't see them until they stood up when I walked in front of the flock.
