Birdline Northern Territory

Published sightings for the week ending 3 Feb 2013.

Sun 3 Feb Long-toed Stint, Pectoral Sandpiper Alice Springs Waste Stabilisation Ponds
Long-toed Stint (1) Feeding among Sharp-tailed Sandpipers on the dried mud at the western end of EP7 just near the bird hide. Great clear views and photographed. Bit jumpier than the Sharpies but still allowed good prolonged viewing. Pectoral Sandpiper (1) Could only find one today, but was in the same spot as yesterday on the eastern shore of EP10 just beside the bird hide.

Sun 27 Jan Grey Goshawk (Grey Morph) Leanyer Sewage Ponds, Darwin
The Grey Goshawk was on the ground in bushland bordering the ponds and popped up on the fence at the furthest end of all the ponds and unfortunately was chased away by Masked Lapwings. There were also two Pacific Baza's at the entrance gate to the ponds.
