I will be in Sydney this weekend. Has there been any further sightings of
these Ruff? Also, would somebody please advise precisely where the Waterbird
Refuge is? I have been to Olympic Park once, via train, and had a bit of a
wander around, but didn't find a Waterbird Refuge - at least, nothing that I
recognised as such! Is it an area where there is no public access?
