Had the pleasure of seeing my first Beach Thick Knee at Cairns last week. 
During my vacation I regularly checked the northern end of the esplanade. One 
day the bird was sitting on a low flat rock on the mud, 5m from the mangroves, 
and 40m from the sand beach. It was low tide.

I watched for 15 mins, it was relatively still - an occasional bob of the head 
the only movement.

I then left to get my camera, but when I returned in 15 mins it was gone.

[I had enjoyed the prior day touring with Ben Blewitt. We checked a number of 
spots but did not see the Thick-knee then. Saw many other "firsts" however.]
