Bird of the Week Challenge: 26th October - water water everywhere

Happy Monday all!

Hope you all enjoyed Bird Week and got out there and saw some lovely birds, hopefully also submitted at Aussie Backyard Bird Count or two...

 

This week lets share photos of birds in or around water - particularly focussing on the waterbirds but open to any bird around water.

Flesh-footed shearwaters feed on fish, squid and krill and can dive up to 50m in depth to pursue prey and unfortunately have been reported being caught in longline fisheries.

I'd love to know. Thanks
