Nordmann’s Greenshank catching a crab

Photographed on 15th November 2008 at the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, Tan Gim Cheong shares his image of the Nordmann’s Greenshank (Tringa guttifer) catching a crab (above).

This greenshank, as posted earlier, rarely over-winters in Singapore but was spotted on the above date after 17 years.

Tan Kok Hui earlier mentioned that the bird feeds mainly on little reddish caught in shallow water. Well, here is an image of the bird actually catching a crab.
