Kayak Mullens

What a great day to be on the water, with a friend to share the time with. And the birds were pretty good too, at least 1800.

Bar-tailed Godwit (Limosa lapponica)
Greater Sand Plover (Charadrius leschenaultii)
Red-capped Plover (Charadrius ruficapillus)
Lesser Sand Plover (Charadrius mongolus)

Very impressed by your plovers. The Red-capped Plover is especially attractive. How wonderful to be out on the water to see all this!

Oh so beautiful. As you might guess, I am deeply impressed with your ID skills. And also as you might guess I could happily spend a day or ten at that beach! Many thanks.

Well if you saw 1800 birds you did very well

Oh...great outing.

You won't believe this, but two years ago, IN TEXAS, USA, we had a bar tailed godwit visit us nearby. It was a favorite for most birders if we were lucky enough to find the European visitor!!!

Awesome seeing the videos! I felt like I was kayaking with you! Love seeing the different plovers.

Very nice images and videos. I need to organise a trip into your neck of the woods to see some of these waders.

Spectacular! What a wonderful trip you took us on! That area looks much like some of our coastal locations. Nice group of birds.
