Kaitorete spit & Crescent Island (L Ellesmere) 2020-21

Postby andrewcrossland » Mon Aug 03, 2020 10:26 pm

Hi folks,

I was doing my trap lines at Kaitorete Spit tip and the traditional early August migratory sandpiper and stint arrivals haven't turned up yet. Just one winter plumage Red-necked Stint present, as well as 56 Banded Dotterels, 3 SIPO and 6 Pied Stilts.
