Alice Springs Waste Stabilisation Ponds

A small migratory wader, the Red-necked Stint (Calidris ruficollis) is found in both inland and coastal wetlands and estuaries. Pictured here is the Red-necked Stint at the Alice Springs Sewerage Ponds.

On some of the photos, you may notice on the legs, the bird band and leg flagging tags (part of research projects by different organisations around the world). More information here on the tagged Red-necked Stint (Calidris ruficollis).
