For access, park in the car park at the end of Wyampa Rd, then follow the boardwalk north, leaving the path off the island circuit and heading across a short stretch of grass, then mangroves. Take care, at high tide this small drain through the mangroves will be knee deep with water. Walk out onto the peninsula, both birds were in the water at the end, past the samphire. Can be a bit of a slog out there, muddy and hot, wellies definitely required.

    Details: Second this year at Tinchi after one back in January. Diminutive bird, contrasting nicely with the larger sharpies nearby. Short, dark, slightly down-curved bill, showing some yellowing to the base of the lower mandible. Dark loral stripe, with a truncated rear end.

    Details: A touch smaller than the Sharp-tailed Sandpipers it was associating with for much of the time. Sandy upperparts; short, dark bill; small ball-head, beady black eye; sturdy, bright yellow legs. Flew upriver with 6 sharpies on dusk - 5 of us managed to connect.
