On friday Ivan (not his real name), Alistair and myself went looking for the 
wandering tattler as reported by others at Kurnell. After a few delays in 
meeting up we were rewarded with great views of the tattler loafing on the 
rocks. Other waders included red-neck stint (20+), ruddy turnstone (5-10), 
double banded plover (8), red capped dotterel (1), golden plover (20+) and 
sooty oystercatcher (12). Several of the golden plovers were coming into 
breeding colours and one of the stints had a pink neck.

We also saw several shearwaters out to sea and a gull, probably kelp on a 
nearby rocky island.

Identification of the tattler was made easy by the fact that the bird was very 
vocal, I managed to get some video of the bird including having it call, when I 
later reviewed what I had recorded I found I could hear the bird long before I 
saw it (but didn't know it at the time).
