A Red-necked Stint roosting among the salt marsh plants. (Red-necked Stints only have red necks in breeding plumage.)
Two Red-capped Plovers and a Red-necked Stint on the right.
I know I have not disturbed the birds when some - or most - have their eyes closed and are sleeping!
All Red-necked Stints except for one Red-capped Plover on the right foreground.
There are usually a pair of Oystercatchers roosting somewhere around the bay. This time one was resting on a sand bank and the other was feeding further around the bay.
As I turned around and looked right out to the entrance to the bay I saw a line of pelicans swimming in.
