We recently moved to the Bayside of the Brisbane area, and I've been
enjoying discovering new local patches, including thousands of waders
at high tide roosts. It didn't take long to top 100 species locally,
though no rarities yet.
Yesterday, though, at Lota Creek, which is just south of Manly on
Moreton Bay, a female Speckled Warbler with three young was hopping
along on the ground about 10 meters from the mangroves.  Are these
Australia's most coastal Speckled Warblers, or are they known to occur
here, or in similar localities? According to HANZAB, they are supposed
to be rare near the coast. There is woodland bordering the mangroves,
and it seems very likely that they bred there, given that the young
were still begging for food.
