    Details: Courting. Horrible yelping sound along with more commonly known moaning call. Two birds walked up to each other (on mud of low tide) about a metre apart, beak to beak, possibly touching. One bird had wings spread wide and low. Calling and stab-like thrusting of the bill. Later they flew off to land near a known nesting location, one bird following the other 100m behind. Leading bird possibly male (seemingly smaller), following bird possibly female (as appeared a little larger).
