Arctic Waders in Troms
During the autumn large numbers of waders are passing through the area on their way south and can now be seen resting in the tidal zone around Tromsø.
Right now, big flocks of Dunlins (kärrsnäppa/myrsnipe), Curlew Sandpipers (spovsnäppa/tundrasnipe) and Little stints (småsnäppa/dvergsnipe) can be observed.
