Stockyard Point, accessed via Jam Jerrup on the eastern shore of Westernport Bay, is a high tide roost for various waders. I missed the tide and was lucky to get a few photos of some of the migratory shorebirds that were still present. Not photographed were egrets, herons, swans, shelducks, red capped plovers, white ibis, seagulls, pacific gulls, and pelicans.

  1. Thanks Wampy. "Missed the tide" - as in high tide is best?

    1. Hi Pete, I recommend about an hour before high tide and an hour after
