Here are some long range shots of two of the 4 Crab Plovers currently on display at Richards Bay.

Excuse the quality of the shots. It was extremely difficult to get close enough to the birds to snap them with a 400mm lens and the wind was pumping. We had to wade 500m in the, at times waist high, water to get within camera range to these birds. Certainly not my easiest lifer thus far after the return 1km water wading trip and the 45km/h wind which made it half impossible to keep the camera steady.

If you wish to see these birds, contact:
