Thanks to Tony Russell, today I added Long-toed Stint to my life list. We
found the bird, first reported by Colin Rogers on Monday, within 10 minutes
of entering the Penrice Saltfields near Adelaide. Like a slender Sharpie,
really, but smaller than a nearby Red-kneed Dotterel, and with
yellowish-greenish legs and also a faint lighter coloured base to its bill.
Also present were a few Spotted Crakes, a White-winged Wren, hundreds of
Banded Stilt, and a swimming young White-fronted Chat, but no Phalarope(s)
At Kaurna wetland, Waterloo Cnr road Salisbury, I flushed no less than 6
Painted Snipes, 2 of which I got good views of later on.
And at Pt Gawler, a pretty degraded small coastal conservation park, an
immature Neophema parrot must have been an Elegant I think (hardly any
facial mask) even though I tried hard to make it a Rock Parrot.
