Portarlington

Not the best day for birding today with the temperature hovering above 40°C for most of the afternoon. However, low tide late in the afternoon on the beaches along The Esplanade in Portarlington (View Map) provided a few opportunities for observing gulls and terns resting on the stony sandflats with many juveniles present. The Crested Terns were particularly cooperative...

While there, a small group of Ruddy Turnstones arrived.



These little birds are great to watch as they roll over stone after stone looking for food.

Apologies for the inconvenience but I have had to turn on word verification to avoid spam (I was getting 10-20 a week)
