  1. Fantastic shots as always! Jealous of those Nordmann's Greenshanks, never managed to catch up with them in the Philippines.

  2. Spring on the boardwalk - sounds amazing, hope to be back there again soon. Wonderful BIF's, I especially like the tern and godwit pics.

  3. You are very fortunate to see so many species in breeding plumage. I have seen many Curlew Sandpipers, for example, but always in drab post breeding garb. Maybe one day...........
