Hello all, Last year was a great year in the
Hawkesbury no lifer,s, but had a good run of rarities for this area starting
with numerous Pectorals, then a Wood Sand Piper, Ruff came next which was still
showing well at Bushells this morning, then we had 5 Little Curlews, followed by
a crippler in the form of a Buff-breasted Sand Piper, and to finish the year a
pair of Yellow Wagtails, who could ask for more.
A couple of mins before I sent this, a pair of
Square-tailed Kites in magnificent plumage with the sun back lighting the wings
were circling over the house. The barred primaries with the cream crescent
at the base of the primaries standing out like a diamond,
HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR TO EVERY ONE from the
magnificent Hawkesbury 55kmN/W of Sydney.
