Did you see many birds during your birding outing? If yes, and also if no, post some or your pic, please \O
Not so many. Last time I went, it was very windy and cold, and most of the birds were hinding. Except the Pratincole, I mostly saw water birds (real ones), I that was a good opportunity to revise the identification :

Wood Sandpiper (Trinfa glareola)

Marsh Sandpiper (Tringa stagnatilis)

Ruff (Philomachus pugnax)

Curlew Sandpiper (Calidris ferruginea) - a female and a male in transition plumage
