Shorebirds at Anse-à-l’Orme

For the first time in perhaps three years the water level at Anse-à-l’Orme has started to drop and expose the mud and sand that shorebirds like in migration. Only the start of the process at the moment but here are some tasters of more birds soon to come


Nothing exotic, but all nice to see and hear. This has been a splendid shorebird site in past years but until the current dry summer the water levels have been too high for several seasons to give them any shore to pass some time on.

Greater and Lesser yellowlegs, Killdeer, Least Sandpipers and a distant Green Heron.
