Today visited the Lockyer Valley, and had excellent close view of the solitary Banded Stilt that is still present at Lake Clarendon. It was nice to have a Red-necked Avocet, a Banded Stilt and a Black-winged Stilt all together in the field of view for comparison. The Banded Stilt was feeding close to the shoreline, before taking flight across the lake.

At the lake in the grounds of the Gatton Agricultural College there were hundreds of Pied Geese and many many hundreds of Plumed Whistling Ducks and Pink-eared Ducks. A single Black Tailed Native Hen was nice to see there as well.

At the lagoon opposite Atkinsons Dam we couldnt see the Freckled Ducks seen recently, but a pair of Cotton Pygmy Geese were in amongst countless Pacific Black Ducks.
