End season of shore birds

I went to Ishikari to see shore birds.
Usually shore birds decrease in this season, but I saw many species.
Bar-tailed Godwit, Spotted Redshank, Greenshank, Red-necked Stint and as follow.

There were many Sharp-tailed Sandpipers in the Artificial pond.

I saw over 10 individuals.
It was my first time to see multiple Sharp-taileds.

Black-bellied Plover.

Marsh Sandpiper.

Wood Sandpiper.

Long-billed Dowitcher.
