Plovers on the Shore
Visitors on the shore…
Some time ago these handsome bird underwent a name change. What once we all called ‘Plovers’ are now officially known as ‘Masked Lapwings’.
Is this an improvement?
Whatever your thoughts, I hope that you will agree that this pair make a lovely sight on the sandy shore.
Rare and charming visitors to the local swimming baths…
A Plover on the shore: not a common sight in the local baths, and therefore well worthy of a photograph.
The Georges River and surrounds provides habit for a variety of birds. From tiny Swallows to huge Pelicans, there’s plenty to see.
Nevertheless, as they say, variety is the spice of life, and for my money the sight of a Plover is a welcome addition.
