These three Pied Oyster Catchers were working the wet sand on the shoreline searching for food items.
The gulls were following and watching closely for ideas or morsels that might escape the OCs.
Quite a team.
Locally rare species. Similar to Swamp Gum but with rough bark over most of the tree except the smaller branches (<10cm diameter). Smaller leaves and fruits than swamp gum and buds with distinct pedicel.
