On Saturday I found a Banded Stilt at Comerong Island, a tick for me. It was roosting with Curlews and Bar-tailed Godwits at high tide. As the tide dropped it it joined the waders as they moved out to feed. It had a faint reddish chest bar.
At lake Wollumboola there were 90+ Little terns and should be nesting in the next week.
At Barren Grounds on Saturday 11th I sighted a Pacific Baza at the Study centre, 3rd record.
Edwin, you might be interested in that on Saturday we found a Gippsland Water Dragon at Carrington Falls.
