Nice Broad Billed picture, they are rare near Hakodate (I saw one at Yakumo once).Long Billed Plovers are not so rare near Hakodate, I've seen them at 3 or 4 different places, usually in winter.I'm looking forward to October's cruise already!
Some lovely photos of waders here!The bathing juvenile Red-necked Stint is so cute as well as the Long-billed Plover. The plover seems to be uncommon down here. I've only seen it once. The Broad-billed looks great as always. It's truly one of my most favourite waders. I've yet to see it in Japan.
Thanks for comments.>stuThank you information.It was first time to see Long-billed Plover in Hokkaido.But it is a winter visitor in Honshu.>AyuwatI saw many Broad-billed in Hokkaido.This season is lucky year for waders.
