Description

This lone whimbrel was associating with a small (about 100 birds) flock of bar-tailed godwit at Ashley Estuary. A very difficult bird to photograph as it continually moved to be shielded by putting the kuaka between me and it during my very slow, very low but visible (because of the flat featureless terrain) approach. The photographs are the reward for 90 minutes of belly crawling across the tidal weeds and mudflats. Also with this bird and the godwits was a flock of six lesser knots
