Wader migration has begun

The last few weeks has seen the start of Trans Atlantic waders arriving from Arctic Canada and North America. Short-billed Dowitcher, Pectoral Sandpipers, Semipalmated Sandpiper, White-rumped Sandpiper and the sixth country record of Western Sandpiper at Dungarvan in Waterford. At the same time Wood Sandpipers and Little Stints are the beginning of waders starting to pour south out of  Scandinavian and Siberia. Here are some shots of Little Stints (the first shot with a Dunlin), which are sometimes confused for the rare North American Semipalmated Sandpiper.
