Clicked this migrant bird coming from the freezing arctic regions to the warmer winter climes of India. This was clicked in the winters at #Basai wetlands just outside the bustling metropolis of #Gurgaon. Am amazed at the colours of species in nature, this one has bright red legs that serves brighten up the dark foggy winter landscape. Guess we should preserve our #wetlands in the expanding urban landscape to provide a habitat to these lovely birds coming from so far away. ' The spotted #redshank ( #TringaErythropus) is a wader (shorebird) in the large bird family Scolopacidae. The genus name Tringa is the New Latin name given to the green sandpiperby Aldrovandus in 1599 based on Ancient Greek trungas, a thrush-sized, white-rumped, tail-bobbing wading bird mentioned by #Aristotle. The specific erythropus is from Ancient Greek eruthros, "red", and pous, "foot". ' It breeds across northern Scandinavia and northern Asia and migrates south to the Mediterranean, the southern British Isles, France, tropical Africa, and tropical Asia for the winter. ' The spotted redshank breeds in the Arctic across much of Eurasia, from Lapland in the west to Chukotskaya in the east.
