I still hadn't seen any large flocks of Godwits by the end of last week but there were good numbers of some of the other migratory shorebirds. These Eastern Curlews were out on the end of the point at Inskip Point. I counted 70 birds.
When I first saw them they were resting and sleeping.
Is that a yawn or a squark?
Inskip Point is where vehicles get on the barges to go over to Fraser Island. As well it is a favorite place for fishermen to launch their boats. It was not long before the birds were disturbed and flew off. There had been people walking about on the sand island when I first arrived but as they had left by now the birds decided that was a better place to rest.
