Red-kneed Dotterel, Mildura
This guy has taken up residence where the Black-fronted Dotterel chick below was raised. No breeding that I know of at this wetland but I did see a chick this year when we went Broken Hill-Menindee-Pooncarie.
Actually wanted to post a picture from that trip but thought twice with the duck shooting season... It's a bit sad when you have to censor your blog posts and location of photos to protect the birds! It was something that came up in discussion with the unusual Malleefowl sighting. Should we actually tell people details when we see such things? Here's hoping that the Malleefowl can disperse soon and become less of an easy target.
