    Photos taken today (February 16th 2021). The image quality is not great, but I hope you can help me with the ID. Among the species seen in the photos, I am only confident in IDing the Common Redshanks. Thanks!

    High tide over the saltmarsh at Keyhaven UK. A small flock of these lovely little waders was feeding on the roadside which runs along the perimeter of the marsh. They seemed quite unworried by the walkers passing close by.

    High tide roost

    This small island seems to be the favourite high tide roost for many of the feeding waders on the Alde estuary I watched wave after wave of mostly Dunlin and Black-tailed Godwits flying in until it was jam-packed As the tide rose some had to fly off to find alternative roosting sites
