It is a great year for the
There are still many swans on
nests and so many pairs swimming around guiding the cygnets
It was Plant at its best
yesterday, bright sunshine and no wind. There were numerous very
vocal Cisticolas, waders returning: one Black-tailed godwit on the Borrow
Pit, still 6 Bar-tailed godwit on Walsh's Lagoon, Ruddy Turnstones at
Kirk's Point with massed roosting of Red-necked Stints, an increasing
number of Sharp-tailed Sandpipers. Glimpsed a couple of Spotted Crake on
the Spit and near the Borrow Pit.
Ducks galore but still no
Freckled Duck, they seem to have found a better pond!
Calamanthus showing themselves, a few Blue-winged parrots but no OBP's.
Spoonbill, Egret, cormorants in the 1000's and skeins of Ibis in the sky.
We have just returned from an
excellent trip to Julatten and Port Douglas, one highlight was our trip to Mount
Carbine with Del Richards.
