St Kilda Saltfields

This morning I had a couple of hours in the Saltfields. There were thousands of stilts there, both White-headed and Banded.
Other waders (shorebirds) included Red-necked Stint and Sharp-tailed Sandpiper.
There were also good numbers of fairywrens there, but this female White-winged was the only one I photographed. Fours species of Cormorant were seen, and only Little Pied was snapped.
I caught this Whiskered Tern plucking insects from the bushes, and also got long range shots of Red-kneed Dotterel and Sacred Kingfisher.


  1. It looks like your morning light and walk brought you face to face with some lovely birds Tony. Hope all is well your way~
