White-throated Needletails (WTNTs ) under summer stormclouds are usually
as regular as sunburn during our Christmas break at Avoca Beach, but not a
one seen this year despite plenty of cumulo-nimbus. Where are they?
A catbird was calling every morning at dawn, Brush-Turkeys very
friendly, after Christmas lunch at least, Dollarbirds a dime a dozen. A pair
of WHITE-BREASTED WOODSWALLOWS sat on wires next to the bridge into Avoca
Village, along with Fairy Martins and Welcome Swallows.
Paddled a kayak around the lake, found a colony of Fruit Bats at the
northern end, as well as the usual waterfowl. Us Avoca Beachers always
thought there was something smelly about North Avoca, now known as the batty
end of the beach.
Cheers and a great birding
year to all.
