Alice Springs Waste Stabilisation Ponds
The Red-kneed Dotterel (Erythrogonys cinctus) at the Alice Springs Sewage Ponds.
The Red-kneed Dotterel (Erythrogonys cinctus) is a plover, often found around freshwater wetlands. Contrary to its name, the Red-kneed Dotterel does not have red knees. The upper part of the legs are pinkish in colour.
The adult Red-kneed Dotterel has a solid black hood and white chin with a black breast-band and chestnut flank patch. The juvenile of the species is gray with white underparts, lacking the black or red.
The photographs presented here were taking in the month of October.
