Herdla, lots of waders

This morning a trip to Herdla, which proved to be very well. Loads of waders, behaving rather nervous though. I think that most of the birds were already present for a few days, but two and a half our produced one Sanderling, three Wood Sandpipers, nine Greenshanks, two Little Stints, two Red Knots, two Ruddy Turnstones, five Grey Plovers, about 150 Ruffs, 100 Dunlins and about 100 Golden Plovers. Besides that a family of Shellducks, that probably bred somewhere around Herdla. Not bad at all. Think these numbers are due to the bad weather recently...
