The Yellow Wagtail was still present at Eastlakes Golf Course, Botany
on Wednesday evening, though not showing well. It was on the same
pond as before (see Edwin's message). Whilst I was scanning for it, a
Little Bittern flew between two patches of reeds, but when I walked
round to within twenty metres of the patch it flew into, which was
only about twenty square metres, it remained hidden. It makes you
wonder how many are lurking around. A third bird of interest was a
male Stubble Quail, a rarity in this part of town: in fact it may be
the first record for the Eastern Suburbs. Had great views on the
ground through a 'scope at about twenty metres: a much more exquisite
bird than I ever realised on views of it flying or running away. The
Hawkesbury continues to come to the Eastern suburbs.
