I saw this male Bar-tailed Godwit (Linosa lapponica baueri) showing new plumage all over and splotches of red down its front. Before it migrates this red color will completely cover the front.
I also got a number of photos of other Godwits probing for small sea creatures deep in the sand with their long beaks. Wherever there is water the sand is very soft and the birds can get their beaks down a long way.
