St. Mary's Knots

Not knowing when the Knot flock will be heading North, we went to St. Mary's Island to secure a few photos before they depart. They made their way into the North bay where I was fortunate enough to be able to grab some decent views.
I find it incredible to imagine that these birds could be be making their way to the Canadian high arctic and Greenland in the coming weeks

Looks to be a sizeable flock there at the moment, hoping to get down on Monday afternoon to check for colour ringed birds.

Hi Brian,
I think there was close to 100 at one point

Meant to say that there were at least 3 colour ringed Turnstone at north beach.
