Today at Ricketts Point, Beaumaris (coastal SE Melbourne) there
was a Grey Plover (the first recorded in the Bayside City area),
2 Red-capped Plovers and 11 (12?) Red-necked Stints.

We record a few waders each year, particularly at Ricketts
Point.  There is currently a stouch about proposals to control
dogs in the area and I was getting worried that so few waders
have been seen this year.  So I went out at dawn. The Grey
Plover was already there and the other birds arrived later with
all three species still present at 1 pm !
