Comments:
Easily my best ever day at Orielton, with beautiful sun, excellent receding tides and great diversity! The waders swarming across the flats reminded me of the numbers and densities seen in places like Brisbane or even Broome... though curiously there was no sign of any Curlews or Greenshanks. My shock at finding two Great Knots was a great highlight!

I was so focused on the Godwits that I was very startled to look up and see a vast assemblage of Wood Ducks on the flats!
