Shirley Cameron mentioned in her latest posting that she's seen very few 
Curlew Sandpipers at the WTP this season.  I've also noticed the same, 
seeing only single birds the times i've visited, and i  haven't seen any 
around the Bellarine Peninsula yet.  Has anyone sighted sizeable flocks of 
Curlew Sandpipers in Southern Vic this year?

In contrast, Satin Flycatchers seem to be everywhere at the moment.  In 
the last couple of weeks, i've had sightings at Point Addis, Moggs Creek, 
Mount Bute, Stoney Creek Picnic Area, Brisbane Ranges and Enfield State 

Is it just that i've spent more time in bush bird habitat than wader 
habitat this season?  Or have others noticed similar?
