[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Fünf verschiedene Unterarten des Knutts leben weltweit, die sich aber nur wenig voneinander unterscheiden. Knutts kommen in der arktischen Tundrenzone im nördlichen Nordamerika, in Grönland und in Nordasien vor. Spitzbergen wird unregelmäßig besiedelt.
Der europäische Brutbestand besteht aus 15.000- 30.000 Brutpaaren, die alle (bis auf wenige in Spitzbergen) in Grönland heimisch sind. Die Brutvögel Grönlands und der hocharktischen Inseln Kanadas überwintern in Großbritannien und im Wattenmeer. Im Wattenmeer von Dänemark, den Niederlanden und Deutschland können zu Gipfelzeiten bis zu 200.000 Einzelvögel anwesend sein. In milden Wintern kann der Überwinterungsbestand dort 50.000 Individuen betragen, die in langen Kälteperioden aber auch wegziehen.

Five different subspecies of Dunlins living worldwide, but only slightly differ. Dunlins occur in the Arctic Tundrenzone in northern North America, Greenland, and in Northern Asia. Svalbard is irregularly settled.
The European breeding population consists of 15,000-30,000 breeding pairs, which (up to a few in Spitsbergen) are all found in Greenland. The Greenland and the High Arctic islands of Canada's breeding birds overwinter in Great Britain and in the Wadden Sea. In the Wadden Sea of Germany, Denmark, the Netherlands, up to 200,000 individual birds may be present at peak times. In mild winters the wintering population there could be 50,000 individuals, but also moving away in long cold spells.

Hi Janusz,
Very good use of shallow DOF concentrating perfect focus on the bird in the FG. I like the positioning of the birds in the picture. The totally blurred BG is giving a good sense of 3D.
Well done for this Nature shot.

Francis Xavier
