I went out to Inskip Point a couple of days after I took the photos I posted last week. It was again a very high tide but because it was later in the morning most of the birds had been disturbed and I didn't get any good bird photos. However, it was a lovely bright day and the scenery was great. This photo is taken on the way out to Inskip where you can stand on top of the sand hills and look back towards Rainbow Beach.
The Point at Inskip was covered with water but one of the 4 wheel drive buses that takes tourists around Fraser Island drove through the water and then the barge took them over to Fraser Island.
I photographed these birds on my previous day at Inskip Point. There were quite large flocks of Terns roosting with the Shorebirds. This photo is of an adult Crested Tern on the left, a Common Tern standing just in front of it and then a juvenile Crested Tern with the lovely "spotty" plumage of a very young bird.
As usual there were small shorebirds running around amongst all the larger birds.
Later on they came closer to me and I got closer photos of a Red-capped Plover
and a Red-necked Stint - looking as if it did not want to be disturbed!
