I think it's been a while since people had a locational puzzle to solve, so I think people might find the following combination of birds interesting. I've just come back from three weeks on the Wallaby and observed the following bird species in a 1 km radius. You shouldn't have any difficulties identifying the region, but well-travelled birders may well be able to identify the actual location.

The incomplete list is as follows:

orange-footed scrubfowl
Oz pelican
intermediate egret
eastern reef egret
mangrove bittern [alias striated heron] - about a dozen
tattler sp
common sandpiper
pied oystercatcher
masked lapwing
golden plover sp
sand plover sp
red capped plover
crested tern
lesser crested tern
pi pigeon
peaceful dove
bar shouldered dove
sulphur crested cockatoo
red winged parrot
tawny frogmouth
large tailed nightjar
laughing kookaburra
blue winged kookaburra
rainbow bee eater
graceful honeyeater
white bellied cuckoo shrike
white winged triller
great bowerbird
trumpet manucode

all up, a very attractive birding site - one I will discuss at length when I put together a discussion piece.

Regards, Laurie.
