These birds are swooping and gliding over the protected waters of the Nelson Haven, a sheltered inlet separated from the open sea of Tasman Bay by the long breakwater of the natural Boulder Bank, visible here as a dark band. Great for birdwatching and romantic sunsets over the Arthur Ranges.
With extensive intertidal sand and mudflats it is an important feeding and roosting area for waders, including Eastern Bar-tailed Godwits, Banded Dotterel and Variable Oystercatcher. Pied Shags breed in pine trees on Haulashore Island to the west and Australasian Bittern occur around the fringes of the inlet.
