Pacific Golden Plover and Ruddy Turnstone

Seen foraging at low tide in North Bay on Lord Howe Island, these two species breed in Siberia and come south for the summer. We were wandering, photographing coral outcrops, marvelling at each new discovery, alternately enjoying soft rain or bright sunshine, when we found these birds, which were soon chased away by a man in a rush to catch up with a group of young boys gathered around a rockpool. He was oblivious to the birds!

Today's photo of Mt Gower and Mt Lidgbird, taken from the wharf, where almost everything except people arrives on the island.
