A surprise sighting at Lake Victoria,  Point Lonsdale on Wednesday was a tight flock of 90 sharp-tailed sandpipers, with a few in breeding plumage. I have not seen a sharp-tailed sandpiper in the Lake area since the last week of March. Two of the flock were carrying Victoria red flags.
Additionally there were around the usual 200 or so red-necked stints which are generally here right through our winter.
