And not just Spoonbills everywhere in good numbers... I was out at Bimbi State Forest near Grenfell in the last couple of days and Sue Beatty and I visited Lake Cargelligo a few weeks ago. I, and we, saw more White-necked Herons than I have seen for many years in the central west. Small dams had up to 5 White-necks at a time and I saw an Intermediate Egret near Bimbi which is very unusual. The ephemeral wetlands outside Lake Cargelligo had so many White-necks it was hard to count them. One of the Lake Cargelligo wetlands had over 70 Great Crested Grebes on it - most of which were juveniles of various sizes. Lots of Crakes, all 3 species, and a party of over 20 Freckled Duck. A few Glossy Ibis too, 20 or so Magpie Geese, and gazillions of Grey Teal. I could go on....
Lets hope more species spill over to the ACT to join the Spoonbills and egrets we have enjoyed so far this year.
