Hi All,

Over the past few days I've wandered around Forde in the late afternoon and had a brief visit to 2 ponds in Bonner today.

Bonner ... not much of great interest, but I did see Eurasian Coots with three quite young chicks ... easy to see for anyone who missed out on the earlier sightings.

Forde - Spotted Crakes, including a couple of juveniles
- Buff-banded Rail (seen on 4 separate occasions)
- Juvenile Black-fronted Dotterel (as well as numerous pairs ... at least 6 birds each day)
- Australian Pipits .. including what I think was a young bird
- White-winged trillers with 2 (or possibly 3) chicks in the nest
- also numerous Welcome Swallows and Reed-warblers with dependent young

Photos attached for anyone interested.
