Hi all,

Spent the day with several others at WTP yesterday.  The eastern conservation 
ponds was again the highlight, with at least 6 Long-toed Stints and 4 Wood 
Sandpipers present, as well as the Red-necked Phalarope (spotted with 
binoculars by David Holland!).  All provided sensational views and were well 
photographed.  The stints were concentrated at the eastern end of the pond, 
often close the edge (several were also seen near the southern shore).  The 
phalarope was in one of the rapidly receding pools in the middle of the pond, 
but did move several times between here and another pool towards the eastern 
end.  A Buff-banded Rail also ventured into the open at the south-east corner 
of the pond on several occasions, and a lone Magpie Goose was present at around 
9 am before flying off.  A thorough search of Walsh's Lagoon at different times 
failed to yield the Ruff, as did a search of T-section lagoons 5, 6 and 7 late 
in the day.  Walsh's did have a Spotted Crake late in the day.

Cheers, Dean
