South Coast Birding

On the last afternoon of the month of August I paid a visit to three south coast beaches for birding. With the fall migration season in full effect many shorebirds were seen on the beaches, these included Semipalmated, White-rumped, Spotted and Least Sandpipers, Semipalmated Plovers and Ruddy Turnstones. I was so impressed with the birds I saw that I registered all three locations, for counting, during this weekend's World Shorebirds Day bird count. Here are a few images of the birds I saw.
