Hi Graham & other Birders,

Grahamn Buchan asked about who to contact about making changes to the Homebush Bay "weed pond". I would suggest he contact Judy Harrington, of the Sydney Olympic Park Authority ( and a committee member of Birds Australia Southern NSW & ACT Group) who has some responsibilities in this area.

In respect to the question of where else can you see Curlew Sandpipers around Sydney, when I lived in Sydney in the mid 1980s, up to 200 Curlew Sandpipers were regularly counted at the Towra Point sandspit, Botany Bay high tide roost.

On the Central Coast, Curlew Sandpipers generally feed at Soldiers Pt/Pelican Pt near Norah Head, and to a lesser extend at Picnic Pt The Entrance. Numbers are highest Sep-Nov.

I am intrigued though that John feels that we should not be concerned about the editorial policy of the Journal "The Emu", but wind farms, bird banding and endless requests and information about cameras are all fair game!
