Small Flock of Baird's Sandpipers

Yesterday evening at the ponds just through the gate that leads down to Cape Pembroke I saw a small flock of 8 Baird’s Sandpipers, also in the flock were a couple of White Rumped Sandpipers. This is the best location for seeing Baird’s Sandpipers that I know of in the Falkland Islands, late afternoon seems to be the best time to see them.

  1. Your blog a Charter Inductee in Favorite Nature Blogs
    Hi- I have chosen your blog (My Handycam) as one of the 20 Charter Inductees into a Favorite Nature Blog feed. I've been building it over the last few days, and plan to start promoting it tomorrow. See http://favoritenatureblogs.blogspot.com/

    I really like this blog, but can't seem to find a feed link for it, which drops it to the bottom of the list. If you can provide a feed link, then your posts will be indexed properly.

    Over the next few months I would like to "interview" each of the bloggers, and do one post on each person.

    Hoping that this will bring a little more traffic your way.

    Well, obviously, I forgot to change the name of the blog in the last comment. Your blog is Birding the the Falkland Islands. Sorry!
