As with lots of other locations around Australia, Black-tailed Native Hens are appearing in their hundreds in a number of different locations around Kangaroo Island. Murray's Lagoon, Duck Lagoon and also salt lagoons near Emu Bay where I would not normally expect to see them.
Also on a salt lagoon near Emu Bay on Tuesday there were at least 2000 Banded Stilts, hundreds massed within about 30 metres of where we were standing hidden by a bank of earth, also a few Avocets with them.
Just to make all you people on the North Island jealous yesterday morning I had two Glossy-black Cockatoos feeding on a casuarina tree overhanging my office.
