Eastern Curlews, Huskisson (Moona Moona Creek)

This pair of beautiful Eastern Curlews spent most of my visit to the local lagoon with their bills tucked well under their wings. This was one of only a few moments with both bills up. I was stood in the lagoon outlet with the tide rushing past my nuts and god-knows what brushing past my feet. It was worth the arm-straining wait to get the shot. I haven't encountered this species for a long time.
