Read with interest the notes from birders re. noted aggression between
certain species.    We have noticed the Sharp-tailed Sandpipers acting quite
aggressively to each other and today the Yellow Wagtail at Eastlakes Golf
Course (near Sydney airport)  was being bombed and harassed by a Welcome
Swallow, which continued chasing it and forcing it down into the reeds or
plants on the mud.   Other birds of interest there today were Freckled Duck,
Rufous Night Heron, Common (1) and Sharp-tailed Sandpipers, Latham's Snipe
and Common Terns.        Neil & Judi Russill
