Black-fronted Dotterel - Charadrius melanops

Black-fronted Dotterel - Charadrius melanops

The Black-fronted Dotterel is widespread in many parts of Australia, where it usually inhabits the muddy margins of a variety of shallow terrestrial freshwater wetlands, walking over the soft mud, all the while pecking at its surface to take small invertebrate prey. As well as natural habitats, they also regularly occur at man-made wetlands, and are often seen at the muddy margins of farm dams. They are also often recorded in less salubrious artificial habitats, such as beside sewage treatment ponds and at sludge ponds in abattoirs.
