Thanks for the close and prolonged views, and comparison. Much needed to bolster my wader ID abilities. Still a very attractive bird after some moulting.
excellent behavioural video of this attractive little wader, Renu and Alok, a pleasure to watch, many tfs!!
Lol, I am seeing down or triple just watching this little wader playing sewing machine. Brilliant action and behavioral footage. Excellent work Renu & Alok! TFS!
