    One of the exciting things about Lady Elliot Island is that you never know what will turn up, blown in by winds. The bird total for this tiny island of 45 hectares is 103!! There were two of these Godwits there.

    Although this is not well composed, I thought it was worth posting to show the remarkable patterning on the Godwit's wing.
