Some birds in Ballina

They went that way!

Flat Rock, Ballina, is aptly ascribed to what is, in essence, a flat rock exposed by low tide. At first, the only birds seem to be the ubiquitous gulls and terns. But patience is rewarded.

In order we have Sooty Oyster Catcher, Pied Oyster Catcher, Eastern Reef Egret, Black-tailed Godwit,  Black-fronted Dotterell, and Little Black Cormorant.

I hope this classic Byron surfer is seen again!

Also great today was to watch the dolphins surfing in through the breakwater at the mouth of the Richmond River.
