Shark Bay Birding

Shark Bay

I had one nice day without any wind and today the wind is howling again. It does not make it easy for birding and the birdies do not like it either. After the Murchison River, I went in to Shark Bay and stopped off at Hamelin Pool to look at the stromatolites. Plenty of Welcome Swallow and not much else. At the beaches before Denham there were a couple of shore birds but no great numbers.

I think this is right. It is hard to id them properly. Edit: I am correct, thank you Liam for confirming my choice.
