[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Red Knot (Calidris canutus) (just Knot in Europe), is a medium sized shorebird which

breeds in tundra and the Arctic Cordillera in the far north of Canada, Europe, and

Russia. It is a large member of the Calidris sandpipers, six subspecies are recognised.

Their diet varies according to season; arthropods and larvae are the preferred food items

at the breeding grounds, while various hard-shelled molluscs are consumed at other

feeding sites at other times.
