1 of 3. Weather bureau predicted new weather system today bringing storms & colder weather for Aust south east. I could hear thunder, see lightning, & went to look for godwits 1 hr before high tide at place they should be bathing & grabbing last snack before bed.
2 of 3 Only 1 godwit there. This clip from yesterday. It was to show how cheeky godwits are. One steals food from another, so it tries to steal from another, if that doesn’t work, pull their tail. Such busy feeders wonder how they survive on so little sleep.

This may be a common catch in NZ but here in Australia 1st time I’ve captured both our summer & winter migratory birds together. There were 8 godwits on roost this AM, 9 this PM. Winter bird is double-banded plover when in Oz & banded dotterel (pohowera) in NZ.
I had an incorrect ID of this bird, not seen one before. It has been ID'd as a red-necked stint.
