Here are a whole lot of shots of waders taken in the Clarence Valley area. Generally speaking there weren't a lot of waders around, but there was the odd interesting bird. These shots are well below usual standard, and i dont post them for the sake of posting nice images. Rather for the point of building up a database of images, and these will suffice until better ones make their way in.
This was another lifer, which was a bit embarassing, considering they are about the most common small wader. And yet, I wasnt entirely sure that I had absolutely seen one. There were a group of 10 of these on a rock platform, affording nice views. Very small.
