Birds at Long Reef Marine Reserve

Hi all,
I thought I would share with everyone some photo's I took of some birds at the Long Reef Marine Reserve a few weeks ago.
Crested Tern
These guys are pretty tame and let me get very close to them.

Double-banded Plover, and Red-necked Stint
The Double-banded Plover is the bird with the red band across the chest. These guys fly over from New Zealand.
The Red-necked Stint (in non-breeding plummage) migrates from Siberia.

Eastern Reef Egret

Grey-tailed Tattler
Another one that migrates from Eastern Siberia

Ruddy Turnstone
This one migrates from the Artic, returning back to the ARtic to breed.
