Soldiers Point


A bleak and rather windy day for the beach, but we stopped in at Soldiers Point at low tide to check on the migrants. No sign of any Curlew Sandpipers today, but there were quite around twenty Red-necked Stints, three Grey-Tailed Tattlers, half a dozen Ruddy Turnstones, a single Sooty Oystercatcher, four Pacific Golden Plovers and the vagrant Wandering Tattler still ambling amongst the incoming waves.
