Mon 18 Apr Inland Dotterel Pilba (near Woomera) on the Stuart highway.
We stopped 7.1 kms west of Pilba to investigate a possible gibberbird. no luck but 100 meters in on the south side were about 25+ Inland dotterel standing in a group. I watched for a while, took a few photographs as they collectively moved off on foot as I tried to get close.
