The weather forecast said mainly sunny - but the clouds were coming over and the sunshine was only intermittent. Looking east along the channel to the open sea.
Looking west out to the sand island - there were numbers of pelicans out there and lots of terns.
I have recently seen lots of jelly fish in the bay and there were a few washed up on the Point.
There was a single Pelican roosting out at the end of the Point but it decided to swim off rather than let me get close.
The wind was quite strong and all the shorebirds that I could see were moving around quite fast as they fed in the soft sand. This Whimbrel and Bar-tailed Godwit were busily feeding just below where the bush track comes out onto the Point.
Further out on the sand flats I could see another group of smaller shorebirds. I took a while to get close to them as they were feeding and moving all the time. The first photo is of a Red-necked Stint on the left of the photo and a Curlew Sandpiper on the right. Then I managed a closer photo of the Curlew Sandpiper by itself.
To finish off the morning I got a photo of a Grey-tailed Tattler feeding at the edge of the water.
