Waders are returning everyday.  Some of the Red-necked stint in particular are still in breeding colour.  The birds must be very hungry; they are eating in a most frenetic manner.

Finding the Australasian Bittern is a challenge; it seems to be in the ponds at the eastern end of the Plant, in the Conservation Lagoon, Borrow Pits or the other wet areas nearby.

There 7 Glossy Ibis and they are mobile too, Monday in the Borrow Pits, yesterday in the Ponds at Paradise Road.   When the avocet are not in the Paradise Road Ponds they seem to congregate out in the Bay at the main outlet to the west of the Bird Hide.

A web cam has been placed on the Plant, I find the picture most difficult to see but you may give those who are unable to visit our wonderful areas some idea of where we spend a lot of our time.


Has anyone seen the brolgas lately?
