Birds of a feather …

It’s been a while since I paid a visit to Cairn Curran at Joyce’s Creek. The storage has dropped significantly – it’s now down to 58%, and there are expanses of exposed mudflat just south of the highway bridge.

Perfect feeding habitat for the resident Black-fronted Dotterels – now gathered in small groups outside the breeding season.


Black-fronted Dotterels, Joyce’s Creek, 11th June 2014.


This represents about half the flock – about twenty in total.


Very hard to catch in flight – here’s an underwing view.
