Spotted Redshank

Spotted Redshank, Nene Washes, 9.4.05

Nikon Coolpix 880 + Kowa TSN-821 + 32xW LER
The highlight of a wander down the central drove of the Nene Washes (always a pleasure at this time of year) was this winter-plumaged Spotted Redshank, which nervously lingered at least to the next day (Sunday). I also saw my first Garganey of the year – a pair near the parking place, and enjoyed a juicy lemon cluster of three Yellow Wagtails.
