Silver Gulls are obvious around the entire coastline of Australia and also over a large part of the interior of the country. Because they are so common doesn’t mean they are not worth looking at or the odd photo or two. In fact they have 6 recognisable plumage stages which makes them very interesting indeed. I have photographed all plumages except nestlings.

Wandering Tattlers (Tringa incana) are amongst the more difficult of shorebirds to identify easily and accurately. They are physically very similar to Grey-tailed Tattlers (Tringa brevipes) with the differences often being difficult to assess in the field. In breeding plumage the two species are relatively easy to separate but in non-breeding plumage it can be far more difficult. I have been photographing Wandering Tattlers for several years and have created an album of photos intended to help birdwatchers in Australia in becoming more familiar with the species.
