Sanderling numbers in SW Victoria

Hi birders

I hope the photo in the link is visible to the general public.

I took this photo in about 1980-1981 on the beach at Yambuk in SW
Victoria. It represents about 50-60% of a fairly large flock of
Sanderlings that I flushed during a Hooded Plover survey. Rough scan of
the 35mm Kodachrome slide as I trawl through my photo collection.

Are Sanderlings still seen in these numbers in Victoria these days? I
haven’t been to Yambuk for ~30 years to see for myself!
