This morning a group of Birds Qld members went for a a wander around the
Minnippi Parklands in Brisbane's eastern suburbs.  This area contains a
small shallow lake, some mowed picnic areas, an area of bushland and is
bounded by Bulimba Creek and the Gateway Road.

Sixty-four species were seen including Baillon's Crake, Buff-banded
Rail, Lathams Snipe, Black-fronted and Red-kneed Dotterels which are all
a bit unusual.  The rest were made up of about equal parts bush and
water birds.  Today were there a number of regulars missing including
Black-winged Kite, Straw-necked and Glossy Ibis, and a couple of ducks.

Visitors to Brisbane who have limited time will find a two hour visit
worthwhile. the park is accessible via Wynnum and Greystone roads.
