info

A small bird was running around the wavebreakers in Hel and Jastarnia after the Common Shelducks. Its plumage differed from that of the birds I had photographed so far. I quickly identified the bird. I was taking photos of the Northern Weatears. It weighs up to 25 grams and its wingspan is 30 cm. Unfortunately, not unlike the Common Sandpipes, they always kept significant distance, even though I remained calm and was really patient. I returned to the spot three times. The distance was so large that the photos presented here had to be framed. Initially, I wasn’t impressed by the scenery where I found the Northern Wheatears. After I read some publications about this bird, it turned out it is fond of such places. Now I present a new bird. The initial gallery is abundant with pictures. I hope to make some changes by adding more pictures soon, together with the galleries dedicated to the White Wagtails and Shelducks and the Common Sandpiper.
