Comments: Braving the summer heat and humidity we descended upon Yatsuhigata having seen reports of Cattle Egret and Sanderling on the Yatsuhigata web site. We arrived at high tide, and from the observation center we observed large numbers of Grey-tailed Tattler on the mud flat immediately below, amongst which were scattered small numbers of Common Greenshank, Terek Sandpiper and occasional Ruddy Turnstone.
