On the way to lunch I noticed quite a few Sandhill Cranes in the cut wheat fields. Around 30 today in the fields I went by.
Baird's Sandpiper (right)
Without anything else to do this evening, I headed down to Tilbury. New for me there was a Wilson's Snipe in the shorebird cell. This cell is almost dried up! Another day or so without rain it will be dry. This has been an excellent spot, so I hope we do get some rain to replenish the mudflat. Lighting was terrible for photos.
Also present were the usual 4 Long-billed Dowitchers (the only dowitchers present!), 4 Stilt Sandpipers and only one Baird's. The other common peeps, yellowlegs, etc. were present.
Five Black-crowned Night-Herons were around as usual.
Hopefully this weekend some new stuff will be around. (i.e. Buff-breasted Sandpipers!).
