1/3 This is the critically endangered eastern curlew. It calls the tidal flats of Port Hacking home. It also calls the sub arctic home, which is where it breeds. It spends 9mths of the year in Australia and 4 mths travelling almost to the north pole, breeds and returns, every yr.
2/3 I have a long lens, which allows me to give it the 100 metres of space it likes to keep between people and itself so it can feed happily, without disturbance, except for the pesky silver gulls. Nature throws enough problems at these birds, without me adding to their woes.
3/3 When visiting Port Hacking please keep an eye out for the birds on the tidal flats from falling to rising tide and sand island over high tide and give them a wide berth. @BirdlifeOz @ShorebirdOrg @WaderStudy @waderquest @EAAFP @GlobalFlyway @ForWaders #shorebirds #waders
