Well, I´m not 100% sure about this bird as I am not so used to vaders. Mick, you know a lot about them. Tell me if I am wrong. Not easy to see as I was not able to get close to them.

  1. It's frustrating when we can't get close enough to get a good shot that will allow for an id. I find these wading birds very hard to identify since the identifying marks are often quite subtle.

  2. Sorry I can't ID that one as we don't get Semipalmated Sandpipers down this way. They look lovely all along that rock wall.


I love comments so please write something. I usually responds to everyone on their own blogs. But nowadays I often find it impossible to comment on many blogs or on Google+. Often the word verifications is unreadable. And after three times I give up. Other times the systems seems to think I am a spammer. Lots of bloggers loose comments that way. :( So, if you don´t see me comment on your blog that is the reason.
