CommentThis Pied Stilt with its long pink legs seems to complement the reddish “fingers” of the Beaded Glasswort (Sarcocorina quinqueflora) as it picks its way across this saltmarsh habitat in the Western Lagoon. The Glasswort is a common succulent that we often see in coastline saltmarsh wetland, and its seeds are a potential food source for some birds, not least the critically endangered Orange-bellied Parrot, that annual migrates here from Port Davey in Tasmania. The Beaded Glasswort turns from green to red around autumn, making for spectacular displays that would do any impressionist painter proud. Coastal mussel shells may be seen in the background. The reflection against a blue sky accentuates the graceful beauty of the Stilt.
