Like Stuart, I too was surprised to see White-browed Woodswallows yesterday
close to the east coast. The strong westerly winds would probably be the
reason for them being present at Barren Grounds. Normally I would find them
along the east coast often in hundreds during drought inland (such as in
1994 along with Masked and Black-faced Woodswallows). Has anybody been
seeing them in other places close to the coast this season?

The winds were very strong and impaired us in seeing some of the usuals -
Ground Parrots and Beautiful Firetail for example.

We also made a brief stop at Windang at the Lake Illawarra entrance were a
few distant waders were seen - mainly Godwits and Knots. Dissapointingly, no
Little Terns or smaller waders present, such as Sanderling, which should be
a regular spot for them.
