|This is the location of the photos – the Red-kneed Dotterels were feeding in shallow water just off the sandy shoreline near the middle of the photo.|
|The birds were actively feeding by probing for food in the sand.|
|The knee (actually an ankle) is red and the rest of the leg (tarsus) is grey.|
|This photo was included to show the colour difference between some of the birds, some very black and others brown.|
|The red tibia and knee and grey tarsus show well in the this photo.|
