When will they arrive? – 1 June 2011

1 June 2011
Simon walked 24 miles today, all alone on the spit, he saw a leg flagged red knot that had been marked in the area previously, he had three red knot territories and had also logged a western sandpiper. I went with Jochen for a walk into the moraine hills to check two territories without any luck. We searched the rivers too and had some close up experiences with red-necked phalaropes, when will they arrive?
