Dear Brisbane B-A's and others

Can anyone inform me as to what has happened at Manly.  I went there on
Sunday and was mortified that it was all flat and what was 3 ponds is
now only 1.

However, the birds seem not too mind so much from what I saw, although
there were no Golden Plovers to be seen.  A species that I would have
thought were a certainty as I got out of the car.

Species Seen:
Sharp-tailed, Curlew and Terek Sandpiper
Great and Red Knot
Bar-tailed Godwit
Grey-tailed Tattler
Pied Oystercatcher - but no SIPO
Red-capped, Greater Sand and Lesser Sand Plover
Masked Lapwing
Whimbrel and Eastern Curlew
Ruddy Turnstone
Gull-billed, Crested and Caspian Terns

and others- Cormorants, gulls etc.
