Interesting sightings in the Lockyer Valley over the last few days -

An earlyish Latham's Snipe today, 10th August (27º 34' S 152º 08' E).

On Friday, 2 Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoos preening each other in a eucalypt
just outside Helidon. The first Yellow-tails I've seen in the valley for
about ten years; two Fan-tailed Cuckoos calling from prominent perches

A couple of Black-necked Storks at Lake Atkinson; Red-necked Avocets still
in good numbers there and at Lake Dyer.

Two pairs of Ground Cuckoo-shrikes hanging around in their regular nesting
areas after an absence of a couple of months.

And, not quite in the Lockyer, 20+ Cotton Pygmy Geese, all neatly paired
off, on the Brisbane River at College's Crossing.
