This Red-necked Pharalope was a nice find in the same place I saw the Black-winged Stilts last week. The light was harsh and I was handholding at 700mm: I was a bit disappointed with the soft pics when I got home. They seemed much better when I was checking them on the back of the camera…
Tag: Red-necked Pharalope
A grey Sunday in August
After an extremely hot 3 weeks a typhoon hit south Hokkaido and temperatures dropped dramatically in the space of a couple of days. Weird weather…………
A few common waders were around and the only typhoon-blown birds was this flock of Red-necked Pharalope…………….
Another typhoon is approaching and it brought more Red-necked Pharalopes. This time in Hakodate………..
There were 3 of them as well as 1 Terek Sandpiper, a dozen or so Red-necked Stint, a couple of Common Sandpiper and a lone Eurasian Oystercatcher. They were all very skittish. Except the Pharalopes.
There were some Red-necked Pharalopes around yesterday: 7 at Yakumo and 3 at Oshamanbe.
They were a variety of ages and plumages…………..
Must have been rough out at sea for them…………
Other waders around included small flocks of Red-necked Stints, 5 Sanderling, 2 Terek Sandpiper, 1 Kentish Plover, 2 or 3 Mongolian Plover and 1 Great Knot.
