Time for a beach stroll

The sun is out, the air is warm and I can feel the spring coming our way - soon it will be Plover patrol and Turtle patrol - I'm excited.
An interesting find today - a spiny box fish....or perhaps I should say its remains....but, oh!! how interesting to see how many bones there are.

One of the Snowy Plover pair were seen along the rack line.

Look how well they blend in with their surroundings.

"Have you seen my partner?"

Look at all the shells that remains from the cold front we had last week - the smell was a tell tale.

A Lesser Black-backed Gull

A nice group of Short-billed Dowitcher are surrounding a lone Willet.

A pair of White Ibis - with attitude!

An adult Brown Pelican in the Australian Pine tree - it always amaze me how they can sit on those wispy branches - a reminder that even though they look big they don't weigh much (8#).

Our banded lady is ready for nesting season....she's quite a trouper.

A Ruddy Turnstone.

A Black-bellied Plover - soon to start getting a black belly....a sure sign that summer is around the corner.
