Hi All, there is plenty of action here in the Hawkesbury at the moment with Bushells Lagoon having over 400 Sharptailed Sandpipers plus a few 100 other water birds. We flushed 6 King quail plus Red-chested and the other common ones at Culpits lane paddock Richmond. There was a male Satin Flycatcher at Scheyville on Wednesday most unusual probably a early returning one. Two Speckled Warblers at Castlereagh Nature reserve was also unusual, rarely recorded at this site and the Square -tailed Kite appears to be is back from where ever its been seen it 3 times this month already.     At McGraths Hill treatment works which is still out of bounds to the puplic, there was a Wood Sandpiper feeding in the eastern end of the pond nearest to the main road.
