The other morning on the beach I spotted a group of Kuaka Godwit doing their thing then realised one bird looked quite different. I believe this is a Ruddy turnstone — I haven’t spotted them around here before. Second photo shows Kuaka for comparison. 🐦

Small bird with dark back and white lower half on the beach.
Two long-beaked wading birds in the beach shallows.
