In the excitement of reporting the Yellow Wagtail at the Western Treatment
Plant yesterday, we almost forgot to say that we also saw a Painted
Button-quail there yesterday as well. The bird was seen by Ruth Woodrow,
Peter Shute and myself on the western side of the (dry) ponds to the west
(right) of the Spit Gate. Good views were had for several minutes as the
bird walked along the track in a northerly direction in front of the car. It
even allowed Ruth to get out and take some photos.


Photos and a map have been uploaded to:


Also seen at the WTP yesterday were large numbers of Musk Lorikeet,
Purple-crowned Lorikeet and Little Lorikeet along Point Wilson Road (100m to
the north of Paradise Road gate). In addition, more than 50 Cape Barren
Geese were seen at the T-Section lagoons, with many others seen in the area
of The Spit.
