Hi all
went for a walk with may family to Long Reef, on Sydney's northern beaches this 
morning from 10:45-12:30.  There were 5 Golden Plover on Collaroy side of the 
reef flat approx 11:45am on the falling tide. 2 black bellied birds, the other 
3 in duller plumage.
The Red Necked Stint are in winter pale grey and showed well when out on the 
darker parts of the reef flat (when I could use my binoculars), although I 
spotted them initially when the tide was still in and they were on the rocky 
headland.  There were also some smaller pale terns on the rocky headland in 
with the Silver Gulls and Crested Terns, but with no scope I can only presume, 
but can't be sure, they were White Fronteds.
Also 2 Grey Tailed Tattlers, 4 Sooty Oystercatchers, plenty of gannets offshore 
and a few whales starting to move through as well.
