We spent a pleasant hour yesterday afternoon down at Fannie Bay looking at waders. We walk along the beach everyday but over the last week we have seen the most waders so far on the mud flats. Yesterdays list included:
Bar tailed Godwit
Eastern Curlew
Terek Sandpiper
Grey Tailed Tattler
Common Sandpiper
Pacific Golden Plover
Greater Sand Plover
and the best sighting was a juvenite Striated Heron still with a fuzz of down hiding among the rocks waiting for its harried parents to bring back food.
A lot better than fussing about night parrot I think.   Steve
