Today I visited parts of the Lake Bathurst area (badly affected by drought). A few observations were of interest:

# 52 Banded Lapwing at the Southern Morass, scattered in several groups;
# 50 White-browed Woodswallows (estimate) in a remnant snow gum patch. One bird was sitting on a nest, found a 2nd nest, but no bird attending it at the time. On my return most woodswallows had left and were somewhere high in the sky. It remains to be seen how many birds will remain to breed.
2 Masked Woodswallows were also present.
# 15 singing Rufous Whistlers at a 12.5 ha site, quite a high density for our region.
