Red-necked stints in non breeding plumage
Photographed on a different ocassion .
These Far Eastern Curlews were simply too far out on the sandbank for any good shots.
Hi MadiWell done for getting to grips with waders! Those curlews look like Eurasian - too pale to be Far Eastern. Check the diffs here: http://digdeep1962.blogspot.com/2011/01/23-january-2011-sarawak-waterbird_27.html
Thanks Dave, it is still a struggle. Excellent comparison betw the two species on your blog.
