I just returned from another night in a hide. I spent over 47 hours in a hide now in the past 4 days… This was by far the most boring. This night there was a group of 20 Finnish pupils at the same site. Most of them were also photographers and were more or less quiet, but there were 7 non-photographers in a large hide who were having a good party. So no bears tonight… It were a long 12 hours waiting, with only little happening. Very frustrating… This Greenshank together with a Wood Sandpiper was one of the highlights. A picture I really wanted, as most lakes and ponds have a pair of those birds breeding. Nice to see these birds in a forested area, in contrast to the swamps we see them in the Netherlands.
