What do waders do when it rains?

posted in: Miscellaneous | 1

S K Foo was at the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve in November 2008 when he found out exactly what the waders did when it started to rain.

“It was a wet day at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve yesterday. So just how wet was it? Very wet… These birds were standing on a patch of land. As the tide rises, accompanied by heavy rainfall, these birds soon found themselves surrounded by the rising water.

“When the land started to submerge under water, the birds started flying to higher ground. This gave me the opportunity for some flight shots.

“Eventually, when all the birds could not take the rising water any longer, they flee.”
