Hi all,

I haven't had a chance to post this message before today, having spent the
last few days everywhere except close to home. On Friday morning (27th
October 2000) I took my Community College group to Yarramundi Crossing
(about 55km WNW of Sydney), where the entire group got excellent views of a
Comb-crested Jacana.

The site is where Springwood Road crosses the Nepean River between Richmond
and Springwood. Coming from the direction of Richmond, cross the bridge
then park immediately on the left. Follow the vehicular track down onto the
narrow strip of land. The bird was on the large expanse of water to the
right of this, walking around on the floating algae. It was easily visible
for the whole two hours we were there.

Other highlights included Nankeen Night Heron, Whiskered Tern, many
brilliant views of Azure Kingfishers, Scarlet Honeyeaters, Satin Flycatcher
and a Rufous Fantail obviously travelling through.
