 Hi Netters,
            Birding with Steve Anyon-Smith from Wottamulla Point (12km south
of Sydney) on Sunday 29th gave the usual unusual.

            We had four large white birds with trailing legs and straight
necks flying in a V formation a long way from shore. After watching them
flying south/east they then turned and flew east and were lost on the
horizon. The only bird I could guess were four Spoonbill type.
