    Another capture form our meeting with the local "Cairns Birding" group. This pic includes Great Knots with a couple of Whimbrels and Gull-billed Terns in the background. PS. Thanks Chris - yes, the Great Knot and Gull-billed Terns are lifers. Overlooked in a senior moment. LOL.

    I've watched many terns give themselves a good shake after leaving the sea to clear any excess water. This one had just done this as I caught it.
