I didn't find the Common Sandpiper in the 45 minutes I was out at Uriarra Crossing this morning before work. I spent the first half hour at the sand-bar where the sandpiper has most commonly been seen, then wandered up-river but without luck.

This makes it two out of four visits this season for which I have NOT recorded the bird, which I think, from the various reports, is probably close to the general success rate. When I saw the bird on 8 Jan this year I had been there for 40 minutes before it flew in to the sand-bar. So I haven't yet given up on the bird still being around...


ps. On the way there I saw two Yellow-tailed Black-Cockatoos fly across Tuggeranong Parkway near Heysen St (Weston), and there were two pairs out at the Crossing.
