WTP on a hot afternoon

Took an afternoon to revisit the WTP, but as the weather has wont to be of late, it turned first into a very hot afternoon, and then a very dreary hot overcast evening.  So the chances of excellent photos diminished by the moment.

Did manage the Brolgas down along the Murtcain (m) _ love the double spelling.   Also found a pair  of Cape Barren Geese, but without any young, so have concluded that they must have lost the clutch they were attending.

No real display of Raptors and try as we might we didn’ t locate the Black-shouldered Kites nest along Beach Road but that just gives us a chance for return.

The waders are starting to return in good numbers and we saw several Ruddy Turnstones up on 280S hiding among several hundred Whiskered Terns.

In the end the weather beat us, and so we beat a hasty retreat to home.

Brolga pair. I was so excited I forgot to level the camera.

One legged stance on this Spoonbill kept us amused.
