Only recently jointed Birding-Aus so I thought I'd share some
recent sightings from my local patch - the Ross River Bush Garden, at Aplin's
Good views of two Great Crested Grebes yesterday, one in
breeding plumage, the other non-br. Also saw 1 non-br bird on
Sighting of Little Kingfisher near Aplin's Weir for the third
time in the past few months. Was able to get very close views.
A pair of Black-fronted Dotterels have become residents on a
small series of puddles on the cement under Aplin's Weir. They have been seen
almost daily since late March, always feeding in the one spot.
Yellow-billed Spoonbill at the Palmetum (near Nathan St
bridge) yesterday, along with 20+ Hardheads & 30+ Pacific Black Ducks on the
small lagoon plus 50+ Aus White Ibis in the trees.
