Shorebirds

I found a new spot almost free from people meaning higher chance of getting close enough. Me lying under a camo net, venturing as close to the water as I dared. Within 10 minutes I had installed myself the flock had come back.

Some from yesterday's golden evening hour. The Red knots were difficult to get sharp photos of as they were continously on the move in search for food, light was too faint to allow short shutter speeds. There were some other interesting species as well however too they were far to take any good photos of.

All with the E-M1.1 and the Zuiko 300/2.8 lens + EC14/EC20

Thanks for looking
Tord


Red knot


Oystercatcher


Black-tailed godwit


Black-headed gull


Common greenshank

Re: Shorebirds

Lovely shots in beautiful golden light Tord. You get some excellent results with your portable hide. I am not good at identifying waders as I don't see them frequently enough to hone my ID skills.
