Magellanic Oystercatchers occur on many beaches. Blackish Oystercatchers were very uncommon. Plovers are fast moving travellers through short vegetation. Snipes ordinarily blend in so well that they are hard to see and photograph. White-rumped sandpipers were very busy catching flies on Volunteer Beach. And the Pale-faced Sheathbill is an occasional visitor from Antarctica.
