Oroklini marsh

Wednesday, 24 August 2011

This is often one of the best wetlands for ducks and waders on the island though, like all the others, the number of birds is dependant on the highly variable water levels. It’s a good site for breeding Spur-winged Plover, passage waders and wintering Jack Snipe and the only site on the island where Red-crested Pochard regularly breeds.

The same site a few days later - now much more attractive to waders
