Thank you to those who replied to give more
My visiting birder David Bakewell had a high
expectation. We first thought about Capertee Valley
but ended up with Centennial Park, Penrhyn Estuary and
Barren Ground in one day.
The Lachlan Swamp proved to be a reliable spot for
Tawny Frogmouth. However, we had to rely on a local
who showed us exactly where 2 birds were roosting. One
was having a 3 weeks chick according to the man who
10+ RN Stints, 30+ Bar-tailed Godwits, Crested Tern,
an adult Kelp Gull and a lone White-fronted Tern. The
WF Tern has its lower mandible slightly broken. A
Silver Gull has a deformed bill where a tongue-like
object sticking out from its lower mandible and it has
lost its right foot. (Photo available for anyone who
Flagged bird - RN Stint Orange over Green on right
Barren Grounds Nature Reserve
Manage to see Eastern Bristlebird although more
skittish than they used to be 2 years ago.
Other highlights are:-
A Wedged-tailed Eagle on thermal.
Fleeting view of Collared Sparrowhawk.
At the car park, there were 2 White-browed Scribwrens
that had metal leg band. Dave took the photo and might
be able to read the numbers on the tiny band later on.
