Stint works hard for balanced feed

Getting 'balanced' diet hard for Red-necked Stint (Calidris ruficollis) holding injured leg close to body ...

Nearby, Black-fronted Dotterel (Elseyornis melanops) takes one-leg rest.

Elsewhere, Silver Gull (Chroicocephalus novaehollandiae), unlike Stint, enjoys stretch of beach.
