Hi all,

On Monday, on the beach at Evans Head, northern NSW, I saw a pair of Beach Stone-curlews digging up pipis(Donax deltoides) with their bills & smashing them open on a small rock, to eat the insides.

I’m wondering if anyone has seen or heard of this before?

You can see my video on YouTube.
