This weekend's birds

Four seasons in one day for sure this weekend in Foxton Beach! It has been cold, warm, wet, sunny and windy this weekend but there has been plenty of opportunity to see and photograph birds. 38 species is a pretty good count for this time of year. As well as stalking the beach for arriving migrants, I have found some terrific spots in the bush for endemics and natives. Here is the best of them in photographs.

Australasian shoveler (anas rhynchotis)

Chaffinch (fringilla coelebs)

Grey Warbler (gerygone igata)

Masked Lapwing (vanellus miles)

Red-necked Stint (calidris ruficollis)

White-faced Heron (egretta novaehollandiae)

Wrybill (anarhynchus frontalis)
