KNOT

Bird Watching (UK) - - Your Birding Month -

As with many wad­ing birds, the win­ter plumage of the Knot is pale grey above, paler grey-white be­neath. But, also in com­mon with many waders, the breed­ing plumage is glo­ri­ous. Knot have beau­ti­ful brick red un­der­parts and span­gled up­per­parts. This is a great month to catch up with Knot look­ing at their smartest, as they pass through on their way to their Arctic breed­ing grounds. Al­most ex­clu­sively a coastal species, in­land Knots are one of those un­usual treats that are far from an­nual at most sites.
