It was a beautiful morning this morning and with an early high tide I thought I might find some shorebirds somewhere along the foreshore in Tin Can Bay. I started at Norman Point where there was beautiful scenery but few birds. The sandbank right at the end was rapidly going underwater and I only saw a couple of Pied Oystercatchers and some Silver Gulls.
I then traveled down to Crab Creek at the other end of the foreshore walk but although there were plenty of birds in the bushes and trees I did not see any other shorebirds. The best of all the birds that I saw in the trees was this Sacred Kingfisher Todiramphus sancta) which was sitting on a branch out over the water.
