Shorebirds are amazing birds. I don't think I need to sell many people on how amazing they are but its a good reminder and exercise to do so. Red Knots were one of those amazing migrations that I had always wanted to see and witness. It was a definite moment when I was hit with the unicorn effect when I found this Juvenile Red Knot. I can't wait to see more of migration and hopefully more Red Knots. I can't wait for the opportunity to try and chase some Red Knots in breeding plumage to round out my experience of them. Until then..
