Slurpee time for Magpie Geese pigging out
Birds swooped down in recent early morning chills to follow up the snorting good work by about six sturdy pigs, five of which logged off at 7.15am today.
Not interested in tubers but enjoying fringe benefits, Yellow-billed Spoonbills, two photobombed by Masked Lapwing.
White-necked Herons another bird turning up to snap up anything showing life on the mud.
Nearby, solitary Red-kneed Dotterel joined scores of sedentary Black-fronted Dotterels on an area abandoned by the tuber brigades.
