Date: Monday, November 15, 2010

Location: Price Saltfields, Yorke Peninsula

Terek Sandpiper (Xenus cinereus) (1) One bird was seen walking along the edge 
of a sand island in pond 4. Also of interest in the same location was the 
sighting of a Black-winged Stilt sitting on a nest made of dry & fresh 
vegetation.A full report of the short Field Trip made by M. Tiller & C. Thomas 
has been entered in the Reserves section, including a photo of the nesting

Date: Wednesday, November 17, 2010

Location: Goolwa Bird Hide.

Latham's Snipe (Gallinago hardwickii) (3) 

Wood Sandpiper (Tringa glareola) (2) 

The Wood Sandpipers were seen from the road side and close to the Sanctuary 
sign, to the right of the Bird Hide.

I walked furthur around the road side, watched from one spot and a Latham Snipe 
flew, back towards the Sanctuary sign. Moving further to the right and scanning 
with binoculars I found 2 more Latham Snipe. Hopefully there are even more 
there hiding in perfect habitat. 

There is plenty of water and should be a great place for waders later in the 
season. Did see one large snake down in the reeds.
