More Wader Watching

I was back at Duart Bay this afternoon to have another look at my Curlew Sandpiper but sadly it was absent. In its place was another island scarcity - a winter plumage Knot. Presumably a 1st summer bird to not be orange by now. We also caught up with plenty of Whimbrels. At Grasspoint a pair of Whinchat were very sexy. We came back via Lochdon and a dog Otter narrowly avoided digital rendering from point blank range before it went into its holt.

We also came across this ex-Hooded Crow. Not a nice way to go...


And here are my shots of yesterdays waders.
