A few years ago I was on a sightseeing ferry trip on Newcastle Harbour. As we passed the Kooragang Dykes at high tide the Captain/guide drew our attention to the birds roosting thereon. He explained the importance of the area to both local and migratory birds, pointing out different species as we neared them. His mention of a Mexican Plover had me scrambling for the binoculars, until he directed our attention to a small group of Sooty Oystercatchers.
