To date there have been very few sightings of Banded Stilt since the breeding

24th Aug - Googs Lake, abt 100km north of Ceduna - abt 18
1st Sept - The Coorong - between Hacks & Parnka Points - abt 60, mostly juvenile
3rd Sept - Bird Lake, Port Augusta - 100+
5th Sept - Bird Lake, Port Augusta - 206 (only 4 adult)
8th Sept - The Coorong (north of Magrath Flat) - abt 1,000, est 10% adult

With continued rain in the pastoral lands will they bred again?
