Today's list!! Black Stork, Glossy Ibis, Pacific Golden Plover, Buff-breasted Sandpiper, 2 Broad-billed Sandpipers, Marsh Sandpiper and 6 Caspian Terns. Of which I managed to see only one Broad-billed during a 10-minute visit. Nice bird-fresh juvenile plumage-no time for better pictures!

Caspian Terns are arriving, today there were at least 2 adult and 2 juveniles of these impressive terns. No luck with the Gull-billed and Glossy Ibis but there was much to see this week; good numbers of Golden Plover are arriving, also many Little Stints and Temminks and a short staying and distant-as-always juvenile Red-necked Phalarope.
And big flocks of birds attract predators, today a Hobby was to fast for me but some days ago a Sparrowhawk cought a White Wagtail and gave a nice show;
Oh sorry, still alive? Wait a moment...

OK, you will probably know so I will not mention the location here. But the sight is amazing, Whiskered Terns are everywhere, many juveniles have fledged but others are still in down and I think several pairs are still breeding. Also Glossy Ibis, 3 White Storks and many Black-necked Grebes.
