Hi nature lovers

I was back on Long Reef showing people the Greater Sand Plover today and we had a few more guests there. In addition to around 200 Red- necked Stints, 25 Sharp-tailed Sandpipers, 27 Ruddy Turnstone, 1 Red Knot, 3 Grey-tailed Tattlers, 12 Pacific Golden Plover and 6 Sooty Oystercatchers, we had 3 Curlew Sandpiper, 1 Whimbrel, 1 Sanderling, 1 Greater Sand Plover and 2 LESSER SAND PLOVERS!

As we were leaving, the skies above the headland were swarming with around 100 Fork-tailed Swifts.

I'm not on the list right now so replies or requests for further info are best directed to my personal email.

Happy birding!
