Morning all

A very pleasant sight at the front gate this morning .... there were 15 Pied Oystercatchers near the Corio Bay Yacht Club (Corio Bay is a southwestern arm of Port Philip in Victoria). We sometimes get 4 here, but this number is extraordinary. A little further along, near the "Little Egret Tree" there was a single Intermediate Egret standing beside a boat launching ramp. From memory this is about the 3rd Int Egr I've seen along this shoreline in the last 5 years. We get Greats every month or so, and the Littles breed there over the summer - they left a few weeks ago.
