Oroklini Marsh this morning 17th October 2013

4 Comments

Had a spare hour this morning so went to Oroklini to see if the Terek Sandpiper was still present. It took a while for me to find it but there was no mistaking it when I did. Lovely bird. Also around were at least twelve Common Redshank, eight Dunlin, more than ten Little Stint, several Common Snipe, a Little Ringed Plover, a Little Egret and eight Grey Heron. There are at least twenty Spur-winged Lapwing in the area. More surprising was a lone Common Shelduck.
