Hi all
Saw a Ruff yesterday at Windang on Lake Illawarra, 15 Km south of
Wollongong on the NSW coast.  It was with about 800 Sharpies which have
gathered on our drying lake, the shore line has now receded some 1/2 a
Km here and has been alive with waders for the last couple of months.  I
was surprised how bossy it was, pecked and even picked up and threw
Sharpies out of the way, had a go at a Chestnut Teal also.
May be the same Ruff from western Sydney with an attitude problem.
Cheers  Chris
