Common redshank in Lofoten

Submitted by Jürgen Tenckhoff on Sun, 03/14/2021 - 15:44

The redshank is one of the snipe birds (Scolopacidae) in the order plover-like (Charadriiformes) and lives in almost all of Eurasia on coasts and waters. At around 30 cm tall, it is slightly smaller than its relative, the greenshank, when fully grown. In Germany you can easily see it on the Wadden Sea. Here it also likes to show itself in larger collections. We were able to photograph him directly from the house in Lofoten, where we could conveniently set up our 500 mm f / 4.0 Nikkor on the veranda. From here the happy hustle and bustle of the birds could be easily observed and photographed.
