CommentThe Kentish Plover is a rare visitor to Australian shores. This bird was spotted on the sandbanks at Noosa. A visit to Noosa for a weekend ensured a few opportunities to see and photograph it. After using a spotting scope to find it among Red-capped plovers and Double-banded Plovers, I kayaked across, camera in a wet bag found a spot in the mud to lie with the sun behind me. A bit of belly crawl then I waited for the rising tide to push the birds toward me. This image is pretty much as it was taken just cropped and a small dried crab shell near the mound of sand removed.
