Wader photography in Bulgaria

It's been a long time since I last posted something on this blog. Well here I am, hope I will manage to post more often. I finally managed to get some time from my busy schedule and post process a few images. Here they are: a few images of Common Snipe Gallinago gallinago, Dunlin Calidris alpina, Redshank Tringa totanus, Spotted redshank Tringa erythropus and Greenshank Tringa nebularia.

Dunlin Calidris alpina was the other bird species that turned up in the pond.

Redshanks Tringa totanus were the most abundant birds in the pond and ... the tamest. Some were coming less than 3 m away from me.

The other species in the pool was Spotted Redshank Tringa erythropus. Unfortunately most of the time it was quite far for a decent shot:
