Although  the wind makes birding on the Plant difficult there is still
plenty to see.
There is a diary in the box in the Bird Hide but few seem to record their

there were a couple of reports of Sacred Kingfishers but no detail of the

We found the most productive ponds today were the Borrow Pit with a
solitary Common Greenshank, lots of Red-kneed dotterel, Red,-neck Stints,
Sharpies and  Curlew Sandpipers, Black-tail Native Hens  +.

There are still a few Blue-bill Duck among the Hard-heads, Teal and Musk
Duck in the long duck ponds.
On the flaps of 15E drain there were a couple of Black-footed dotterel.
Further west in 85W were 15 Glossy Ibis, Both Bar-tailed and Black Tailed
Godwits among the Avocet, Swan ++
Walsh's Lagoon was where the Spoonbills, both Yellow & Royal were hanging
Reed Warbler, Cisticolas, Chats, Scrubwrens, Swans with cygnets, etc abound.
Towards Kirk Point there were Richards Pipits, Brown Songlark, Skylark,
