Thanks Alan

Please, everyone, do not be tempted to get too close and flush the birds, please just look from under the bridge - I am sure the fishermen will flush the birds for us.

Stockton is on the Hunter River estuary and a good spot for waders: it was a terrific spot but.....!

The link is,151.790886&spn=0.077267,0.145912&z=13

Naturally paste as one line if it wraps! This should work too:

You'll see the small grey patch on the north side of the bridge, where the 121 road crosses Hunter River and the 'F' of Fullerton Road is on the map (below Fern Bay). One must assume that yellow roads over blue water indicates a bridge;-)

You enter the area under the bridge by turning on to Fullerton Street from Fullerton Road and doubling back under the Southern side of the bridge! (The double back track is very close to the road junction bend here. You actually park under the bridge looking north at the "grey patch". This is where the waders roost and you should try and see them from the car park area.

Change the link to satellite view and you can zoom in to see exactly where it all is!

Good luck.
