Common sandpiper




Common sandpiper at Haukkalampi (=hawk's pond)
in Nuuksio National Park 28.6.2014.

The bird wasn't very happy with me and I heard
something move in the shrubs. I'm guessing
there were fledglings hiding in the shrubs.

I'm linking to Wild Bird Wednesday.

  2. Det är vackert ljus i bilderna på den fina fågeln. Näbben ser lång ut i förhållande till fågelns storlek.

  3. Nydelig lys i bildene dine.
    De to øverste bildene gir nesten inntrykk av at fuglen bare har ett ben.
    Ha en flott kveld :)

  22. My first thought was the same as Theresa's, it is nice to see him perched rather than beached.

  24. ser lite lustigt ut där den står på ett ben på en gren. Tror inte jag sett något sådant förut. De brukar stå på stenar. Vackra foton.
