Water levels at Lake Victoria, Point Lonsdale are ideal for looking at small
waders at the moment with loads of Red Necked Stints and Sharp-tailed
Sandpipers as well as a few Curlew Sandpipers feeding on either side of the
track to the golf course. So light should be good both morning and afternoon
for looking for rarities.  However in my searching all that I could see of
interest was a RN Stint with an orange band on the right leg (can someone
pass this on to relevant authorities).

In all 40 species were seen in about an hour, including Great Crested Grebe.

Water levels at Breamlea are still good and again I saw 40 species in a
couple of hours.
