   Published sightings for the week ending 4 Jan 2015.

   Sun 4 Jan Swift parrot Pontville
   At least three feeding in a flowering non-native eucalypt in the garden
   just across the old Midland highway from the pub at Pontville; several
   others heard in the vicinity. Owner of garden says that they're a
   regular in her planted flowering gums at this time of year.

   Thu 1 Jan Sanderling Denison Beach behind Nature World, East Coast Tas.
   41 birds feeding with 1 Hooded Plover
   Frank & Lennice Wilson
   Wed 31 Dec Ruddy Turnstone Moreland Point, near Devonport
   Approximately 80 birds foraging in the seaweed a little to the east of
   the "usual" high tide roost, in very wild and windy conditions. Nice to
   see good numbers of this species here still, at least, even if overall
   species diversity was well down tonight.
   John and Shirley Tongue
   Mon 29 Dec Red Knot Orielton Lagoon
   Two Red Knot now at north eastern bay or Greenshank Corner in Midway
   Pt. The two Knot were feeding and sheltering together from the wind at
   high tide with about 70 Eastern Curlew and 6 Greenshank.
   Els Wakefield
   Sun 28 Dec Freckled Duck Goulds Lagoon Wildlife Sanctuary
   At least ten Freckled Duck sighted at 7:30am today on the lagoon. All
   resting around the southern end of the western part of the lagoon.

   Thu 25 Dec Forty-spotted Pardalote Marion Bay
   Party of somewhere between 12 and 15 working through white gums behind
   the beach just north of the Marion Bay village. In 15 years of weekly
   walks through this area this is the first time I have encountered them
   here, despite Maria Island being in view across the water. [An
   interesting report of this rare species outside their normal range -
   perhaps a temporary dispersal from the Maria Island population? JT,

   Sun 7 Dec Grey-tailed tattler Clarke Island - rocks between Kangaroo
   Bay and Seal Point
   One grey-tailed tattler, plus several ruddy turnstones, red-capped
   plovers and red-necked stints, along sheltered rocky shoreline between
   Kangaroo Bay and Seal Point
