I haven't seen large numbers of waders yet, but I guess they'll build up. 
In the last week I've seen Mongolian Sand-Plover (1), Red-capped 
Plover(4), Black-fronted Dotterel (c.6), Black-tailed Godwit (c.10), 
Latham's Snipe (1), Sharp-tailed Sandpiper (c.60) with Curlew Sandpiper 
(2-3), Common Greenshank (c.6), Pied Oystercatcher (1), Pacific Heron (3), 
Australian Pratincole (3) and the usual Black Swans, Magpie Geese, egrets, 
ibises, spoonbills.

Whoops! Forgot Whimbrel (3), Eastern Curlew (6), and Little Curlew (1).

Probably see more of everything at the Cleveland Bay Treatment Works.
