Abstract Salmonella enterica serovar Hvittingfoss is an important foodborne serotype of Salmonella, being detected in many countries where surveillance is conducted. Outbreaks can occur, including a recent multi-state foodborne outbreak in Australia. S Hvittingfoss can be found in animal populations, though a definitive animal host has not been established. Six species of birds were sampled at Roebuck Bay, a designated Ramsar site in north-western Australia, resulting in 326 cloacal swabs for bacterial culture. A single flock of 63 Bar-tailed Godwit (Limosa lapponica menzbieri) caught at Wader Spit, Roebuck Bay in...
