At Kellys at noon today, in front of Cygnus hide, there were c. 8 Black-fronted Dotterels around the far margins of the shallow water, 2 Whitefaced Herons, and a lone Royal Spoonbill (first Ive seen there for a while). A Black-shouldered Kite was perched high in a dead tree over near the Sewage Ponds before working its way to another tree nearer Canturf, and then on towards the Molongolo. A Little Eagle sailed high over the Sewage Ponds. At the carpark, many Welcome Swallows on and off powerlines, fence lines and occasionally on the ground, many (>15) Magpie Larks in a flock, and a huge (50+) flock of feral pigeons on the powerlines.
