Welcome arrivals at Ashdod

This morning my weekly visit to Ashdod ponds proved a bit more worth my while than previous visits. At last the Calidris have arrived and were well represented - 16 Little Stints, 1 Temminck's Stint and 1 Curlew Sandpiper, all adults in pretty summer plumage. These are ugly record shots, in fact I have no idea why I uploaded them.

Also new were 20 Ruff. Lots of common stuff - wood, green, marsh and common sands, redshanks, and 3 LRP's.
