[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A few days ago I visited the peninsula of O Grove in Pontevedra (Spain). It is a paradise to see wading birds in particular. Thousands of birds wintering and having good time for good light. Calidris alpina were very generous with copies of Calidris alba too.
If anyone has a chance to go to this area, my advice is definitely in winter, especially in the month of September.

Hace unos días visité la península de O Grove en Pontevedra (Spain). Es un paraíso para ver aves en general y limícolas en particular. Miles de aves invernando y con buen tiempo para tener buena luz. Calidris alpina eran muy abundantes junto a ejemplares de Calidris alba.
Si alguien tiene oportunidad de ir a esta zona, mi consejo es en invierno sin duda, sobre todo en el mes de septiembre.

Hello Roberto,
Very beautiful photo of these Dunlins. Excellent sharp focus on the last two birds. A little bit of noise in the background, a pity. Beautiful natural colours and a great composition.

Hello Roberto

Excellent photo of these 3 wader birds on their symmetrical flight,
fine POV, if the bottom one would also be superbly focused
with great sharpness and details like the 2 ones of the up,
the photo would be even greater, TFS
