Busy birders

It was a very busy week for the birdwatchers, two rare birds had been spotted in the Bøjden Nor reserve next to our B&B.
One was an American plover ( pluvialis d. dominica), it was in a larger group of golden plover, and the other one was a dotterel ( charadrius morinellus).
Yesterday they were both in the field next to us, and it was funny to watch all the birdwatchers,  standing along the gravel road down the beach with their telescopes and camera's pointed in our direction. Both birds spend the summer on the tundra, so they were on their way up north and rested here for a few days before going on.
