Beach thick-knee, Cairns

I've been on so many seemingly perfect beaches and not seen them,that I'd given up hope of seeing beach thick-knee this holiday. However a chance remark by a local birder at the esplanade led me to an industrial estate on the outskirts of town where I was made up to find two birds, along with bush thick-knee. With the exception of Cassowary which was always unlikely, beach thick-knee was my number one target species of the holiday.

Now that was worth travelling 10,000 miles for!
