Waders in North Germany

It has been a good autumn for wader numbers in the polders. Grosse Rosin polder has low water levels at present and in the last 2 weeks Ruff, Spotted Redshank and Snipe have all been present in double figures, and over 100 Dunlin, several Grey Plover and Curlew Sandpiper have added to the variety. During a brief visit on 28 September I found 3 Greenshank and 2 Green Sandpiper in addition to the above. There were 20+  Bearded Tits and 3 White-tailed Eagles.
