Hi Russ and all,

Visited this site early afternoon today (Sunday) and missed the Painted Honeyeater but observed a couple of Spiny-cheeked Honeyeater- one hanging around the yard on the corner of Oasis Ct and Serenity Way, and the other down near the creek. Very vocal.

Also of local interest was a single Sanderling observed on Saturday morning feeding on mudflats at low tide at Godwin Beach on the mainland between Ningi and Bribie Island. Possibly the same bird photographed by Bob Inglis and seen by others near Buckleys Hole on Bribie Island a couple of months ago.

Peter and others,
                         Tim Murphy was able to provide contact details for the 
birder who saw the Painted Honeyeater.
                           Peter Boyd advises he and another birder saw a 
single PH on 18/7, he hasn't been back to check since.Peter gives the following 
site directions: About .75km along Caboolture River Rd (from commencement off 
Morayfield Rd), turn left into Ben St, then into Amy St, then into Serenity 
St.Go to end of Serenity St where small patch of bushland begins. Take walking 
path, veer right, look for mistletoe.(Apparently this patch is at the back of a 
new estate, as Serenity St isn't in my old UBD)
I'll be having a look this arvo.
