g'Day all

Four Great Knots have been observed roosting at high tide on an exposed sandbar about 1 km east of the St Helens wharf often in association with up to 54 Bar-tailed Godwits and 11 Eastern Curlew First noted on Feb. 3 they are regularly using the site since.

Some of the waders here are showing traces of breeding plumage with three godwits at a reasonably advanced stage.
