Identifying Knot and Dunlin
Telling winter waders apart can be daunting. Success in this (and if you are keen to find rarer species) is not difficult, provided you are familiar with two key species: Knot and Dunlin. This guide tackles these two ‘confusing calidrids’, familiarity with these is essential in order to gain experience and confidence identifying the apparently bewildering range of waders on our coasts in autumn and winter.
