Hi all,
Last weekend (24/2/07 - 25/2/07) I was heading to Hill End (70km North of Bathurst) and came across a Banded Lapwing. I think this is an unusual location for these. It was in the same location on both days and is likely to still be there if you are interested in ticking, photographing, etc. It was on Turondale Rd. Heading South from Hill End Rd cross the Turon River and after the road takes a sharp turn to the left there is a farm house on the right (only a few hundred metres from the bridge). The Banded Lapwing was with a pair of Masked Lapwings and a group of Australian Wood Duck around the 2 small dams near the road at the entrance gate to the farm. They are a bit shy so you have to have your camera ready if you want to take shots as they walk away up the bank towards the farm. I got a few reasonable shots at medium range as they moved away.

Good Luck!
