Spring Fever Hits Foxton Beach

Spring Fever Hits Foxton Beach

With typical changeable spring weather, it is all go at the beach. With a little perseverance and luck, you can spot some cracking birds down there. We have good numbers of bar-tailed godwits and red knots but nestling in with them are some birds that have not been reported for a number of years. The big advantage of Foxton Beach is that if you are quiet and patient, you can get close enough to the birds to get great shots without disturbing them. These are my best photos for the week.
