Last Sunday (6 November) on our way to Nadgigomar Nature Reserve (a must visit!), north of Braidwood, we came across a family of two adults & two juvenile Banded Plovers. They spent ages bathing in a large roadside puddle, then spent time preening. We observed them for about twenty minutes and after deciding to take the risk of opening the car and taking photos they flew off (little buggers!). The observation was about 5km along Euradux Road, which runs off Nerriga Road. Should be put in a rarity report, or is this a 'ho-hum' sighting? (We were excited!).
