most migrants have past & wintering birds left

Permalink 16:16:43, Categories: Observation by Howard  

Last weekend was disappointing but today with a morning tide I spent some time chasing waders around Busaiteen shore before moving on to South Tubli and the Eastern shore south of Alba - I finished again today at Buhair to check the progress of the breeding birds there. More a check on what is still around I was surprised by the number of Lesser Sand Plover and Terek Sandpipers still to be found in small flocks all along the shore.
