G,day Birders,

Visited the Bendigo Mining Evaporation Ponds complex last night (20th) with
Simon Kennedy.  Numerous waders still present, including some in pre-breeding
plumage.  It was the first time I have seen Red-necked Stints with 'red-necks',
and a Marsh Sandpiper is in good colour (four present in total).  The Pectoral
Sandpiper is still there (I initially recorded it there on the 13 January) and
is also in pre-breeding plumage.  Red-capped and Black-fronted Plovers are
numerous, as are Sharp-tailed Sandpipers and Red-kneed Dotterels.  We also saw a
Double-banded Plover (first recorded there last week), but this bird was much
more boldly marked than the previous bird.  First recording of Cattle Egret for
the ponds, with three in total.
