Waders in pouring rain
On Thursday [August 31] we finished transmission from the wader camera at Haversi beach in Noarootsi for this season. The migration of woodcocks still lasts until October. For the organisers it was a new experience that helps further development of camera positions and the transmissions.
We have had the chance to watch migrating waders during a month in close up and at a distance at the seawater boundary. During that time some ten wader species were noted – godwits, plovers, ruff, oystercatcher, turnstone, grey plover. Some species may certainly have slipped past the camera unnoticed.
Wader species were introduced by Margus Ots, www.linnuvaatleja.ee
