Dear birding_Aus readers,
Since it's in my local patch and it suits my interests, I've
been "handed the baton" by Marc Anderson for updating the cumulative
list of bird species sighted at the artificial Kurnell Shorebird Lagoon
(formerly designated simply "H1" - located on the
southern shores of Botany Bay).
Please report to me in future any species to add to the list
below, which is to the best of our knowledge up-to-date.
I don't need reminding however that such lists are of no real
use to researchers
- so as a member of the Botany Bay Wader Count Team (convened
by Phil Straw in cooperation with NSW Parks & Wildlife),
I would also be grateful for counts - past or present -
from any birders who visits this site .
I can mail you a form on request.
For my convenience, please report the following if
it's not too much trouble:
- Time from and to
calm, light breeze (1-15km), mod (15-30km), strong
Precipitation - fine/sunny; fine/cloud; fog; drizzle; rain; hail
- Tide in Botany Bay (within 2 hrs): H, L, Incoming or
- Species & Count
- Any incidental notes of interest
Anyway, I will still be grateful just for the
plain counts per species.
List follows in separate emails (not
sure yet on how many parts - due to size limits on Birding_aus not matching what
my PC tells me).
