If you look closely at the photograph you’ll be able to pick out three species, two Red-necked Stints (paler), the larger Double-banded Plover and a male Red-capped Plover at right. The Double-banded Plover is a trans-Tasman migrant that visits Australia in reasonable numbers outside the breeding season. We seem to get one or two at Cairn Curran most autumns. It’s the odd-one out in the flight shot of my previous post – the fourteenth bird from the right.
