It was an almost perfect morning - still and bright but a bit chilly. The tide was on the way out and the birds were all looking for food right at the edge of the water. I saw migratory birds - Godwits, Whimbrels, Eastern Curlews, - and local birds - Gull-billed Terns, Egrets, and Masked Lapwings. None of them were close enough for good photos of individual birds. It is a perfect environment for shorebirds and recognized as such by its status as a Ramsar wetlands site. In another couple of months there will be hundreds of migratory shorebirds returning to this bay. All photos enlarge when clicked on.
