This is a view from close to the boat ramp. Tin Can Bay is just out of view around the left bank.
The bay is ringed with mangrove trees and even at high tide there are some sand banks for the birds to use. This one had a couple of Pied Oystercatchers, a Silver Gull, and a Little Black Cormorant.
Silver Gulls always make a good photo against a blue sky.
These are Tree Martins which can usually be found here swooping over the water catching insects and perching on any empty fences or mooring ropes.
There was a Great Egret perched on the edge of the bank and watching carefully for any fish that might be down in the water - or any fish that it might be able to take from a couple of people fishing close by on the boat ramp.
This close view of the bird's head shows the gape of the yellow bill extending beyond the eye. This is one way to distinguish this egret from some of the others.
I thought that there were no more birds close-by for me to photograph until I looked up! Pelicans often use these big lights to rest on.
