Wood Sandpipers, Asprokremnos pool, Cyprus

May 9, 2010:
As the water level fell on the pool through evaporation and run off, an area of vegetation was exposed. The Moorhen fed widely over it and even the Little Crake ventured away from its reed bed sanctuary.

As dusk was falling two Wood Sandpipers in full summer plumage flew in. Once settled they fed avidly and apparently without concern. Presumably they were newly arrived passage migrants making use of a rest and a stop-over.
