Walking around to the Mullens roost becomes more interesting when the tide is very high. Just how deep is the water around that tree and would it be easier to scramble through the bushes behind the tide line?
High tide makes the roost look very beautiful.
I couldn't seen any shorebirds on my side of the roost until I walked around the south end. Then there were a few Red-capped Plovers and Red-necked Stints. Both of these shorebirds don't mind people coming quite close - which really helps a photographer!
Something disturbed the shorebirds on the other side of the roost and they all flew up then settled down again on that side.
However, a small flock of Lesser Sand Plovers flew over to my side - flew back again - then finally settled on my side.
I have never been able to get really close to Lesser Sand Plovers unless I have been in the kayak. Then I have been able to float to within a few feet of them. These ones let me close enough to get some recognizable photos but not close enough for really great photos.
