I'm still finding waders "challenging" :wall: Are these two yet again common greenshanks or might either be marsh sandpipers? Seen along the Luvuvhu River in KNP in early November 2014.

Have you never seen a marsh sandpiper before, arks?

The straight, needle-like bill is a feature you will recognise. MS is a small bird.

Thanks for the "extra help", Johan 8) I have seen both, but when I'm looking thru my pix, I am just never really sure which is which (plus it's often hard to tell/remember size from the pix and I'm generally only working my way thru them months after the sighting, which of course doesn't help :redface: ) Perhaps in future I'll get better at working them out (and I do in fact manage to work out some without asking for help) :whistle:

I SO appreciate the help that I'm getting here! :clap: :gflower: :thumbs_up:
