Hi all, had a quickie visit by Peter W yesterday, he'd driven down from
Waikerie and met me at the gate to Penrice Saltfield where he hoped we could
catch up with the Long-toed Stint for him.
Took us about two minutes to find that one, didn't bother about the
Pectoral, then had a quick skim around the Phalarope pool but it was either
very well hidden or hadn't arrived yet - has anyone else found one at
Penrice yet this year?
Thousands of Banded Stilt out there, lots of Skylarks and Willy Wags too.
White-winged Fairy Wrens near the gate.  Tide was out so not many waders.

Greenfields Wetland has a bit too much water in it for many waders, but
other waterfowl about in great numbers. Thousands of Grey Teal, a few
Shovelers, and thousands of Coots.  Plenty of Stilts and Spotted Crakes. I
left Peter there with his scope, reckons he was in heaven.

Beautiful morning here in Adelaide today, bright sun, very light breeze,
temp around 18degs. Rosellas and Lorikeets going bonkers in the trees,
chased around by the pesky Noisy Miners. Very easy to just sit around
outside with a Wild Turkey, but I just have to get to the shower and then
the shops.
