A Piece of Self Indulgence

Marion Bay Monday 28/11/05

I came across the flock of c70 Bar-tailed Godwit alluded to by Bill W. in the pelagic blog. They were feeding at the mouth of Blackman Bay as the tide receded and I have appended a few of the photos taken.

I was able to approach within 20metres or less to take these. Ironically I had gone to Marion Bay to photograph Hooded Plovers, but I didn't even manage to find a single bird. I have always been able to find them in the past and have caught and banded adults and juveniles here . Was I just unlucky or have numbers declined here?
