Black to Front

We saw this small bird near the water’s edge at Lake Monger in Perth. It’s a Black-fronted Dotterel and is much easier to recognize than many other birds of the shoreline, due to its distinctive colouring. They are reported to be widespread throughout Australia, but this was the first time that we had actually noticed one of them.
