Unplanned Trip Part Two

After taking photos of the Sooty Oystercatcher what should fly in was not one but four Wandering Tattler, another species we don't have up our way as they like to hang out on rocky shores. We do get the Grey-tailed Tattler which prefer sandy beaches and shorelines, with Mangroves as roosts.

Will finish with what else arrived while we were there in part three.

Great photos and especially good to see Wandering Tattlers with so much breeding plumage on them. I wonder if they leave on their migration north as late as the Grey-tailed Tattlers do?

Going by how big they look they might already be on their way.

Yes, I thought they look like they had fattened up for the trip, Neil.
