Common Redshank in breeding colors

These are pictures of the Common Redshank / Totanus tringa in breeding colors, images made in Sommevagen, Sola, Norway. The birds in Norway have just returned north on their way to their breeding ground via the West Atlantic Flyway.

Common Reshank are regularly sighted in Kuala Baram and other marshy spots along the coast of Miri in August/September when they traverse south during autumn migration; and again in Feb/March when they make their way north again to their breeding ground in Russia, Asia to northern China.
