I went down to check progress on the construction of the permanent entrance to 
Lake Illawarra. Work started a few weeks ago and I have been concerned about 
the Double-banded Plovers. There were  23 DB Plovers, a number of them in new 
breeding plumage and they did not seemed to be disturbed by the machines and 
trucks. On the sand spit in the lake were 68 Caspian Terns this is the largest 
number that I have seen in the area for a number of years, two birds had orange 
colour flags. Also present were around 20 Bar-tailed Godwits, 50+ red-capped 
Plovers and 1 Red-necked Stint.                          regards Terrill
