Hi Jill, Paul, Bob and all who are interested,

The birds were in the same area this afternoon and their number has risen to 30-40, from your communications I am pretty sure that they are White-winged. Unfortunately it is not possible to enter the CSIRO fields (we were warned off last month when we saw the Brown Songlarks which incidentally, are still there at the moment!) but you can park on the roadside..... the birds were on the northern fields and some were perched on fences.

Hi Tom,

White-winged Black Terns (WWTE) are around in big numbers at the moment,
gathering for the northward migration. I have not seen any yet with anything
more than the odd trace of black blotch, but it's a week since I was out,
and things change fast with WWTE.
