Happy World Shorebirds Day!

Starring what probably is one of the oldest Common Ringed Plovers of the world. I managed to read off the entire band number from combining lots of photos, and it turned out this male was banded in 1999 - 17 years ago. Usually, this species gets up to 11 years old, oldest record is a 20 year old bird from the UK, second oldest I was able to find are severyl 14 year old birds.

Meadow Pipit (Anthus pratensis)

Acutally wanted to take some pictures of the Common Redshank one post behind, but when this Meadow Pipit posed right in front of him, I was all like "Eh, I'll take it!".

Taken on Hallig Hooge in the German Wadden Sea.
