Great Knot, Lesser Sand Plover, Red Knot
Photographed byMark Horvath on Sun 20th Mar, 2016 and uploaded on Sun 25th Feb, 2018 .
CommentTaken at 5:37 pm while walking back along the beach to the access point after a successful photographic afternoon. The capture of three species in breeding plumage was a highlight that afternoon as the following week they were all gone. This image however is the best I could get of the Red Knot. They always seemed to be behind the Great Knots.
EquipmentCanon 7D Mark II with 500mm F4 and 1.4x Teleconverter. Hand held. 1/1600 F6.3 ISO 400.
LocationBushland Beach, Townsville (Queensland)
