This morning I observed an adult Oriental Cuckoo in flight and then perched, 
firstly on a powerline and later on a fence wire, near the Coldstream River, 
between Cowper and Tyndale, North Coast NSW.  It was a first for Warren 
Thompson who was with me.

February-March seems to be the time for this species in our area, although I 
have only had a few records myself.

The Painted Snipe was not observed at Gilletts Ridge but conditions are still 
good and it is probably still in the area.  A pair of Brolgas was on the nearby 
wetland but the family of Black-necked Storks, seen there recently, could not 
be found.
