CommentThere were plenty of observers and bird photographers on the Cairns Esplanade - for good reason. As the tide comes in various species come close and closer - until many of the shorebirds lift and fly north towards the mangroves where, according to one of the locals, there is a high tide roost. This bird was preening and bathing and is doing a wing stretch as part of the process.
