Hi all,

On New years Day we were down at the Yeerung River bridge at Cape Conran at 
about 7:00 am.

WTNTs started to arrive above us and by about 7:30 there were some 15 to 20 in 
sight at any one time. We left and drove west toward Marlo along the coast and 
at each stop we were still in sight of at least 20 birds. 

I have no idea if this was one flock serendipitously following us down the road 
or if we were under one continues, loose flock of some hundred +/- birds. I 
expect it was a large loose flock as the birds were continuously overhead 
rather than appearing to be moving to the west at the same speed as ourselves.

Anyway, to have these birds combined with a Ground Parrot, Southern Emu-wrens 
and a White phase Goshawk made for a spectacular morning.

And out of curiosity, did anyone see Sand Plover at Mallacoota on the 31st? We 
had distant views of what appeared to be 2 Greater Sand Plover on a sand bank 
but they were too far off to confirm.

Cheers all
