Trip to Stockton, Newcastle

Red-necked Avocet

Earlier in the year I visited Diamantina National Park and was lucky enough to video Red-necked Avocet. While there I was told that if I wanted to video Avocet I needed to go to Stockton. Well, when the rain stopped and the tides were correct I set out in anticipation. I was not disappointed. When I parked under the Stockton bridge there were about 3000 in front of me as well as a variety of other waders in large numbers. In two days I was able to add 9 new species to my waders DVD: Common Greenshank, Red-necked Stint, Caspian Tern, Little Tern, Sharp-tailed Sandpiper, Terek Sandpiper, Curlew Sandpiper, Grey-tailed Tattler and Red Knot. There were also a variety of other species present that I had already. What a wonderful spot to view waders!
I now have 365 species. Only 35 to go.
