A rather more likely rarity to favour a rocky edge, would be the Common Sandpiper.

But Little Penguins, and dare I say it, Purple Sandpipers are expected any time from now.

Both of those species are only marginally less likely in those lagoons than 'waves'.

‘FSP’ is our usual way of referring to Fyshwick Sewage Ponds.  This popular birdwatching venue has been closed to us for well over a year, first for the construction of the new electricity substation and then for  reconstruction of the margins of the ponds to avoid erosion from wave action.  Our enquiries about just what that will entail have been met with the response that ‘rocks’ will be used.  Now we have an idea of the progress of this long-running project and an indication of what kind of rocky margins we shall see when access is again allowed.  When they said ‘rocks’, they meant rocks.  Crake-seekers, for example, will probably be disappointed.
