I had a very pleasant day birding around Broome today. A high number of
very interesting birds in close proximity, Broome certainly is a good place
to go birding.
On St Mary's school oval there were a number of little curlew. the new oval
near Woolies was the best spot, though. Many australian pratincole, quite
a few oriental pratincole, a lone oriental plover, many black kites loafing
on the oval, little curlew, pacific golden plover, 6-8 eastern yellow
wagtails and at least one green headed wagtail. When I had been there on
Adrian Boyle there were at least two green headed.
I then headed out to the bird observatory with good birds off of the viewing
platform being at least 10 oriental plovers and 1 broad billed sandpiper.
After that, when I moved back towards Broome with the tide coming in the
birds were flighty and it was bloody hot, so I packed it in and came home
to watch the cricket and saw the aussies get in some trouble.
