A wide range of waders on display including Ruddy Turnstones, Pacific Golden Plovers, Common Sandpipers, Terek Sandpipers, a Beach Stone Curlew, two Striated Heron, a Common Greenshank, Rednecked Stints and Wandering Tattlers.

White-winged Black Tern Alice Springs Airport
2 birds dead on runway, photographed by safety patrol. The last couple of days have been very drizzly in Alice Springs so perhaps the birds had mistaken the wet tarmac for open water?
