Spent some time birding in the Cooroy area on Qld.'s Sunshine Coast yesterday. Cooroy is about 20km west of Noosa but retains a Qld. country feel. Birded at Lake MacDonald initially, also known as the Noosa Botanical Gardens. Got a total of 40 species in 2 hours with the best being two Latham's Snipe, Jacana, and a single Rufous Night Heron. Others of interest were Royal Spoonbill , Australian Grebe with 3 young. Surprised by the lack of ducks, only saw Pacific Black Duck and Hardhead, not even Wood Duck. The water treatment works adjacent added heaps of Scarlet Honeyeater and a Rufous Whistler.
    Moved onto a wetland on the Noosa Rd. about 3 km east of Cooroy, near Fig Tree Lane. In just 20 mins.saw 23 species, all but one (Brown Honeyeater) waterbirds. This wetland had both Royal and Yellow-billed Spoonbill,around 12 Jacana ,5 Darter, and a solitary Glossy Ibis.
         A relaxing time and far better than visiting the nearby Eumundi Markets ( although their local lager is terrific , on a par with Cooper's of Adelaide)
