This afternoon i went down to Murgeboluc Recreation Reserve to see if any 
waders had arrived. 

There were a group of about 20 Red Necked Stints and single Sharp Tailed 

Also in the swamp were large numbers of  Black Winged Stilts, Black Fronted 
Plovers,  about 3 Red Kneed Dotterels, Shelducks, Coots, Black Swans and 
probably many more waterfowl in a section of the swamp i couldn't see. Lots of 
Welcome Swallows and a few Fairy Martins also hawking the insects over the 

The trees were also buzzing with activity with White plumed Honeyeaters, Galahs 
and Black Faced Cuckoo Shrikes all attending to nests.   
Other species seen were: 

Silvereye, Red browed Finch, Crested Shrike Tit, Red Rumped Parrots, Grey 
Shirke Thrush, New Holland HE's and  Superb Fairy Wrens. 
A lovely spot.
